Peer Credentialing & Training 101 for OMH Providers: NY Certified Peer Specialist, **Youth Peer Advocate Credential, Family Peer Advocate Credential
June 8, 2022
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This webinar is intended for employers and prospective employers of Peer workers, including family, to learn about the training and certification/credentialing process for all three OMH Peer Credentials.
If you are an employer in an OMH-run program or in an Office of Mental Health-funded, -licensed, and -designated program, you’ll want to attend this session to learn the requirements for employees in your agency and programs to become credentialed or certified. There are specific requirements that need to be met both by the people seeking certification or credentialing and by those who employ them.
We encourage employers to send this announcement to agency leadership, program directors and supervisors of Peer Support workers. The session will include time for questions and answers and an opportunity to meet with those in the credentialing/certification program that is most applicable for you and/or your staff.
