Certified Peer Specialist 2019 CPS Training Schedule
Certified Peer Specialists work from the perspective of their lived experience to help build environments conducive to recovery. They promote hope, personal responsibility, empowerment, education, and self-determination in the communities where they serve. CPSs are trained to assist others in skill-building, problem-solving, setting up and maintaining self-help mutual support groups, and building self-directed recovery tools. A critical role of the CPS is supporting others in developing their recovery goals, and specific steps to reach those goals.
These training courses are provided by Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network. If you are interested in attending, please contact them at 404-687-9487 or visit their website.
