We are SO EXCITED to announce that our Founder, JEANINE HOFF, has been selected as member of MENTAL HEALTH AMERICA’s nationwide team to develop their national accreditation certification program for peer specialists!!!
About the program: This credential is designed to meet and exceed the standards used in public behavioral health around the country. The certification will require enhanced training and substantial work experience. A major purpose of the certification is to meet the needs of private health insurers and private practitioners. Expansion of peer support into the private sector will open up new career paths and opportunities, which have been previously unexplored, for thousands of peer supporters. (Mental Health America)
