Certified Peer Specialist Training Pre-Requisites:
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, we must make reasonable accommodations to allow a person with a disability to take part in a program, service, or activity. We will take any other reasonable action that allows you to take part in and understand a program or activity, including making reasonable changes to an activity. If you believe that you will not be able to understand or take part in a program or activity because of your disability, and need to request a reasonable accommodation, please contact us.
As human beings, most of us experience a challenge occasionally. Many of us who are in recovery have great self-awareness and an attitude of resilience. These things help us keep moving forward even when something seems to be “getting in our way."
Many of us learn to recognize when something “could get in our way." We learn how to be prepared in case those things show up. We learn that we can take action to prevent a “challenge” from becoming a “roadblock” that prevents us from reaching our goals.
The following questions are about potential challenges and things you can do to continue moving forward even if challenges arise.
Mental health providers will check criminal background and abuse incidents before they hire you. Past crimes or abuse will not always disqualify you from employment or volunteering, but it may be an issue for some applicants and employers. This training program is intended for candidates eligible for employment as Certified Peer Specialists.
Please inform us if you become unable to meet any of these conditions. If for any reason you must cancel your participation, contact us immediately and allow someone else the opportunity.
