The Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network sees a critical need for Trauma-Informed Care.
We see a great number of individuals who have experienced trauma in their lives, and the devastating long-term consequences of that lived experience. Providing Trauma-Informed Care Training, focused on systems change for Georgia’s Peer Workforce enhances the important work done by Certified Peer Specialists (CPS), Certified Addiction Recovery Empowerment Specialists (CPS-AD), Certified Peer Specialists-Parent (CPS-P), and Certified Peer Specialists-Youth (CPS-Y). We believe Trauma-Informed Care training positively and significantly impacts the lives of many people within our state, and has a direct impact on the utilization of a wide array of behavioral health services.
If you are a Certified Peer Specialist interested in participating, we recommend registering as soon as possible. The six scheduled trainings will be on Zoom.
