NYC Peer Specialist Conference Call for Proposals

“Rising to the Call: Joining the Evolution of our Peer Support Workforce” acknowledges the ever expanding and remarkable peer support workforce. The recent surge in peer support services during Covid-19 is just one example of rising to the call to support others through connections driven by hope, identification, and unparalleled passion. Although peer support continues to be under scrutiny by its skeptics, overcoming challenge and claiming individual purpose are hallmarks of the recovery journey.  Whether you hail from mental health, substance use, justice-impacted, youth, or family peer support, rising to the call is characterized by the innate ability to hear others with empathic ears and understand others through a lens of lived experience. This annual conference offers opportunities for professional development, continuing education, skills acquisition and enhancement, healing, and purposeful networking. Please join us in evolving together!
