Supporting the Youth Peer Support Role Within Your Organization

About the Webinar:

Pacific Northwest (Region10) Mental Health Technology Transfer Center in partnership with Pathways RTC bring you “Supporting the Youth Peer Support Role Within Your Organization.”. Youth peer support is an emerging and innovative role within mental health that is seen as valuable for young adults who are system involved. While many agencies want to employ or do employ youth peer support specialists, there are many questions and challenges regarding how to best support this role. In this webinar we will clarify the responsibilities and boundaries of the youth peer support role and offer tips on how to support this role and these employees within your agency.
