Webinar: "Peers as Crisis Service Providers" presented by The National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery

Date: Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 pm Eastern Time 
Description: Research shows that the involvement of peer specialists is critical to prevention, allows states to save mental health program dollars by reducing cycles of hospitalization and other emergency interventions, and increases recovery and community integration outcomes. Peers are currently playing an increasing role in providing crisis services, through running crisis respites, staffing crisis response centers, and participating in mobile crisis and/or outreach teams. This webinar will provide examples of the range of crisis services that peers can provide, the benefits of integrating peer specialists into crisis services, and common pitfalls to avoid.
Intended audience: crisis service providers, state and local administrators, peer-run organizations, family-run organizations
Presenters: Steve Miccio, Jim Hajny, Sue Bergeson, Paul Lyons and Heather Rae
