Free 40 hour Recovery Peer specialist Training

 Subject: Free 40 hour Recovery Peer specialist Training

CFBHN is sponsoring a recovery peer specialist training for peers who would like to mentor other adult peers with mental illness on June 13-17, 2011 in New Port Richey and June 20-24, 2011 in Sarasota. The only requirement is that the person has a mental illness that they are comfortable disclosing and that they have an interest in either volunteering or working as a peer specialist. We are giving preference to consumers who live in the 11 counties of the suncoast region: collier, lee, charlotte, desoto, Hendry/glades, Sarasota, manatee, Pinellas, pasco and Hillsborough.   If the classes are not filled with consumers from the 11 counties we will allow peers from other counties to attend .  The classes have a 15 person maximum so you will need to register early. You can go on the website to register.  The training is free but they do register directly with Florida Peer Network.  This 40 hour training is accepted by the Florida Certification Board as part of the process to become a certified recovery peer specialist.  Thanks, Susan

    The New Port Richey training has been cancelled. Instead there is a training in Fort Myers June 27-July 1. We still have openings; interested parties should contact Rose at the Florida Peer Network ASAP.
