TA Coalition Webinar: An Overview of Family Peer Support Certification: Insights Into State Implementation

As the field of Family Peer Support continues to evolve, states are developing certification standards to ensure the provision of quality services. These standards vary from state to state and are reflective of the unique characteristics of the state. While many states are creating certification for Family Peer Support, others are electing to adopt and utilize the national certification standards and examination, developed by the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health.

Join us as we discuss certification standards that have been developed in Texas and Michigan and the national certification standards. Learn more about the processes that were involved in the development of each of these certifications and lessons learned through these processes. Our presenters will discuss the training, experience and educational requirements of each certification process and will offer insights as to how Family Peers are being utilized in a variety of settings.
