This 56-hour training provides a Peer Support Specialist (PSS) certification. A PSS provides support, encouragement, and assistance to mental health consumers by promoting activities that foster recovery and empowerment. A PSS is also a consumer advocate who facilitates linkage to needed services and activities. As a member of the treatment team the peer specialist provides expertise and consultation to the team to promote a culture in which each client’s point of view and preferences are recognized, respected, and integrated into treatment. Peer support specialists are usually employed by departments of mental and public health, clinics, community care organizations, or nonprofit organizations. *You are liable for payment at the time of registration.
