Please join the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health, ACMH, and others for a SAMHSA sponsored webinar about Family Peer Support Certification on Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Details about the webinar including instructions to link to it are listed below:
An Overview of Family Peer Support Certification: Insights Into State Implementation Webinar: As the field of Family Peer Support continues to evolve, states are developing certification standards to ensure the provision of quality services. These standards vary from state to state and are reflective of the unique characteristics of the state. While many states are creating certification for Family Peer Support, others are electing to adopt and utilize the national certification standards and examination, developed by the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health.
Join us as we discuss certification standards that have been developed in Michigan and Texas and the national certification standards. Learn more about the processes that were involved in the development of each of these certifications and lessons learned through these processes. Our presenters will discuss the training, experience and educational requirements of each certification process and will offer insights as to how Family Peers are being utilized in a variety of settings.
Presenters will include, Jane Shank, Executive Director, Association for Children’s Mental Health, Barbara Granger, Family Coordinator, Via Hope, and Lynda Gargan, Executive Director, National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health.
