What is Weitzman ECHO for Peer Recovery Specialist?
Weitzman ECHO for Peer Recovery Specialists is a 12-month education program with sessions occurring twice a month that connects Peer Recovery Specialists to a community of peers and subject-matter experts. Participants that register below should plan to join as many sessions as possible over the one year program.
Who should attend?
This ECHO is for you if you have lived experience with mental illness, addiction, co-occurring conditions, and recovery, and you are now supporting others going through similar life challenges as a professional peer supporter through a health care system. Due to greater than anticipated registration numbers, we are only accepting professionals with a "Peer" title at this time. If you supervise Peers, please have them register below.
What will I gain by attending?
This ECHO will equip Peer Recovery Specialists with the skills needed to help the individuals they serve advocate for themselves while providing ongoing education and mentoring opportunities for peers. Each session will cover topics that are important to the peer role such as Team Based Care, Ethics and Boundaries, Self-Care. Peers will also have the ability to present challenging client cases for recommendations from the expert panel.
How do I join the live sessions? (Do I need any special equipment?)
Weitzman ECHO sessions are held virtually using Zoom Video Conferencing. Access is available on any computer with an internet connection, phone (audio only), and smartphone.
How do I sign up?
Registration for the November cohort is now closed. Due to greater than anticipated interest, we are currently exploring opportunities to expand the program. If you would like to be added to the waiting list to be contacted in the event of future programs, please complete the form below.
