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. All 7 trainings that are remaining for this contract year will be virtual on Zoom.
We have openings remaining in 2 of the 7 trainings. These are taking place on June 10-11, 2020 and June 17-18, 2020.
If you are accepted to a training, you will receive an e-mail to confirm that you are available on Zoom for the 2 day training and asking for a local address to send your Trauma Informed Care manual.
