Congratulations to our latest class of peer support coach graduates!
Carol, Craig, Dan, David, John, Kristine, Liz, and Rita
These fabulous people spent over 80 hours in the classroom learning new skills and sharing their wisdom and experiences with one another. Now they will go to work in the behavioral health field (or resume their jobs as peer coaches) supporting individuals in need. Peer support is a rapidly growing field – other titles for this role include; peer specialist, recovery coach, community healthcare worker.
Here’s a great site that explains the science behind peer support work: http://peersforprogress.org/learn-about-peer-support/science-behind-peer-support/
We’re honored to be part of the peer support community in Colorado!
