Peer to Peer Provider Workgroup

Peer to Peer Provider Workgroup

02/21/2019 - 9:30am to 11:00am
Revive Center (1668 W Ogden)

This workgroup will develop an independent structure to improve and expand upon peer support activities, such as peer interviews and technical assistance, that were previously conducted as components of the site visit process.  Questions the workgroup will consider include: What type of peer to peer provider support is needed?  What types of support activities would people be likely to engage in?  What resources already exist?  The goal is to develop and implement activities that will enable staff across different agencies to share their strengths and help one another address their challenges.   
Expertise needed: Individuals who have participated in peer interviews in previous years, either as the interviewer or the interviewee, are encouraged to join and share their perspective.  However, past participation is not a requirement.  Any individual interested in helping to develop the provider support structure is welcome. 
Meeting details: Contact Jennifer Fabbrini at for more information about this group

We may have a waitlist and invite as our capacity allows.
