New Discussion Forum
ForLikeMinds is a connection application that offers rich opportunities for online group discussion. We have set up a group for questions related to the Academy of Peer Services courses in preparation for additional learning support planned in the coming year. Look for this in the “What’s New” section of the newsletter.
The newsletter also contains other upcoming events, articles, research studies and more. We hope you find it useful in your work and hope you’ll connect with us during our future continuing learning opportunities.
There is a new elective course in the Academy of Peer Services on the Peer Specialist Certification process in New York. It includes information about certification and renewal or recertification. If you have questions, that's a great place to start.
