Peer Support Specialist Training

<< All Events

The North Dakota Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division has brought in Appalachian Consulting Group’s (ACG) curriculum for peer specialist training, which is a person-centered, goals-oriented, strengths-based curriculum. It is based on the belief that setting a person-centered goal is the heart of the recovery process. Recovery is the process of gaining and maintaining control over one’s life – and the direction one wants that life to go – on the other side of a mental health disorder, substance use disorder, traumatic brain injury and all of the losses associated with those challenges. Peer Support Specialists self-identify as an individual who has personal lived experience and is willing to publicly identify as an individual in recovery from a mental health disorder, brain injury, substance use disorder, or combination; or is a family member of an individual living with a mental health disorder, substance use disorder, brain injury or combination. Attendees will learn the core competencies, roles, and tools of conducting Peer Support Specialist work in their communities.

Who should attend?

  • Individuals who will be supervising peer support specialists
  • Anybody willing to publicly identify as an individual in recovery from a mental health disorder, brain injury, substance use disorder, or combination.
  • A family member of an individual living with a mental health disorder, substance use disorder, brain injury or combination. Exact locations will be sent out with registration confirmation prior to the training.
