The Academy of Peer Services, funded by New York State’s Office of Mental Health (OMH) offers online, internet-based education for peer staff providing services to their fellow peers. If you have any questions, please contact Tara Davis at:
The content of these courses has been shaped by a variety of influences including the interviews of peer leaders, detailed input from peer provider experts from around the state, as well as input from regional meetings throughout the state, and OMH staff. The input of those who participate in the Academy is integral to shaping its activities for the future. The classes are rigorously designed and will assess what each participants learn, offering a certificate of completion after finishing the requirements of each course. Each course will also solicit feedback from students to make future improvements.
