The toolkit is for behavioral health organizations and programs that are establishing, growing, or seeking to improve peer support services. Directors, program managers, supervisors, peer specialists, community health workers, and integrated teams will find this toolkit and the lessons learned by other organizations to be helpful.
 

What you will learn in this webinar:


Toolkit Background


The needs-based toolkit from the NYC Peer and Community Health Workforce Consortium includes nine organizational categories of practice that plan for, respect, and advance opportunities for peers and community health workers to meaningfully and uniquely contribute  to the support of service recipients.

How it Works


An online self-assessment of organizational readiness measures how current practices at your organizations align with the identified practice domains. After completion of the self-assessment, the toolkit will immediately appear.  The toolkit is customized, as it comprises contents that are automatically selected according to responses.

About the Faces and Places of Peer Support Webinar Series


This series was established to help answer the question, "What is the peer support model, and what does it look like in practice?"

Through this series we will showcase some of the best organizations, peer support programs and providers, innovative new practices, and practical ways in which peers are making a difference. The series is offered by the APS Virtual Community with support from the New York State Office of Mental Health, Office of Consumer Affairs.

The first two webinars in the series were:
  • What are peer services? Presented by Kirsten Vincent with Housing Options Made Easy
     
  • What is the WCNY IPA - Independent Practice Association? Presented by Joseph Swinford, Executive Director for the Wellness Collaborative of New York Independent Practice Association (WCNY-IPA) and Manager of the New York Peer Specialist Certification Board that is managed by the Mental Health Empowerment Project (MHEP).
