Intro to recovery and peer support
The Northern Marianas Protection & Advocacy Systems Inc., in collaboration with Peerlink National Technical Assistance Center, will be hosting an Introduction to Recovery and Peer Support training.
Peerlink works to strengthen the capacity and infrastructure of peer-run programs and traditional mental health organizations.
These sessions are open to all who are interested about the topics of recovery and peer support, including family members, and providers.
The conversation on recovery talks about perceptions and ideals around mental health and addiction recovery.
Recovery from mental disorders and/or substance abuse disorders is a process of change through which individuals may improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to achieve their full potential.
The discussion then moves to peer support, services run by people who personal experience living with psychiatric disabilities and/or addictions. Peers understand how it can affect every aspect of living, including one’s hope for the future.
The training for Saipan will be held on Monday, June 11, 2018 from 6pm to 9pm at the Northern Marianas College, Room A-4.
The Rota training will be on Thursday, June 14 from 9am to 12pm at the Northern Marianas College-Rota, Room A-1.
These sessions are open to all who are interested about the topics of recovery and peer support, including peers, family members, and providers.
