Please join us in honoring the most recent class of parent-peer supporters at our virtual graduation celebration this Friday, September 16, from 1 to 1:30 p.m. The number of parent-peer supporters in the state is gradually and steadily growing. They are a passionate and dedicated group. We hope you will celebrate with and get to know our newest graduates!
We invite our state agency partners, mental health and other system providers, MAP Team coordinators, current parent-peer supporters and anyone interested in parent-peer support to attend graduation. It’s a wonderful way to learn more about parent-peer support and how parent-peer support helps the system of care for children.
We appreciate the Mississippi Department of Mental Health’s financial and programmatic support for this training and parent peer support in general. It is also exciting to see parent peer support growing across systems. We give a big shout-out to the Mississippi State Department of Health and the Office of the State Public Defender for their work in this area.
We encourage any parent interested in parent-peer support to consider future training. You can learn more about what the virtual training covers and who is qualified to take it in this brochure.
A special thank you to all the mental health providers implementing parent peer support in their agencies. Families as Allies is here for you too! We can support you with recruitment training, supervision and programmatic needs and issues. You can call us any time, and we can also provide more in-depth technical assistance. We encourage anyone who works with parent-peer supporters to attend our Parent Peer Support Conversation for Anyone Working with Parent Peer Supporters on September 29 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. CDT.
