The two-week Peer Employment Training held September 8-19th, was a smashing success! Facilitated by trainers from the Recovery Opportunity Center, the 75-hour class trained peers to work as Peer Support Specialists in the healthcare field.

The curriculum was divided into three sections:

Part 1 - Personal Development; Knowing Yourself, helps Peer Support Specialists become excellent role models of recovery.
Part 2: Turning Point; Preparing Yourself for Work teaches Peer Support Specialist how to connect with the people they serve, and
Part 3: Skill Development, identifies specific skills and practice opportunities in the workplace.

Topics and skills included; Telling Your Personal Story, Employment as a Path to Recovery, Ethics Training, Communication Skills, Conflict Resolution, and Partnering with Professionals.

Upon completion of the classroom training, students received a provisional Certificate of Completion, preparing them for internships and job interviews.

During the two-week class, the group developed a strong bond and celebrated their success with cupcakes and a presentation ceremony. Congratulations graduates!

 
Text, Talk, Act to Improve Mental Health

TTA LogoFinalWhat will you do when your friend needs help?

Will you know what to say and how to respond?

One in four adults suffer from a mental health disorder in any given year. If these statistics were for cancer, diabetes or heart disease we would label this an epidemic. Given that 3/4 of all mental health challenges begin between the ages of 14 and 24 young people depserately need to have this conversation. But how do you talk about something that has been in the shadows for so long?

Right now, across the country, young people are breaking the silence, using social media to talk about the elephant in the room.

On Monday October 6th, this conversation will go nationwide. 

Anyone, anywhere can join this vital effort. It's easy:

  1. Gather 3-4 people and text START to 89800
  2. Talk with your group using the text-enabled questions
  3. Be part of the change

Don't have 3-4 peeps with you on October 6th? Join the discussion on Twitter using hashtag: #TextTalkAct.

To encourage this conversation, participants can win prizes for themselves or their schools/community organizations. Visit: bit.ly/TTAcontest for more details and to register.
