October 2023 CPS & CPPS Supervisor’s Community of Practice
“Supervising Peers with Multiple Lived Experience”
with Startina White
October 18th, 2023 from 1:30 – 3:00 pm CT
- Startina White
Startina was born and raised in Milwaukee Wi. She has worked as a Certified Peer Specialist for 3 years all of which have been performed at Wisconsin Community Services. She has lived experience with mental health as well as substance use and has been in recovery for 4 ½ years. Startina believes in the Peer Specialist model of support because without it she believes that it would have taken her even longer to seek treatment and support for herself. Startina is now the Assistant Director of Community Based Peer Programs at WCS, yet still serves as a Certified Peer Specialist and states this work helps to keep me humble, motivated, and hard working in my own recovery, every day that I am blessed to wake up.
Join us in this Community of Practice gathering to learn how to support peers in their own recovery to prevent burnout, how to balance with work and home, and promote ethics and boundaries.
