At MHA, we know that peer support can be an invaluable tool for wellness. Through our Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CRPA) training, we offer a path toward employment for people with lived experience of recovery. The peer recovery professional bridges the gap between clinical prevention-treatment providers and relevant multi-dimensional resources in the community. This connection is achieved through purposeful conversations using role modeling, motivating, problem solving, resourcing etc. Through two unique course components, participants will have the opportunity to gain knowledge about the recovery process and learn how to offer peer support.
More information about the availability of this training to come in the near future.
