Upcoming Webinar: "Enhancing Skills for Peer Support Providers: Research on the AMP+ Skills Enhancement Training"
Time: 10am – 11am PT / 1pm – 2pm ET
Research on peer support in mental health consistently cites a lack of clarity around the role and its skills as a barrier to high-quality implementation. This webinar reports on a study testing the AMP+ skills-enhancement intervention for peer support providers working with youth and young adults. AMP+ provides web-based training and video coaching that is specific to the peer role. Peers reported high satisfaction, improved their skills, and reported reduced work-related anxiety.
