Certified Peer Specialist Training:

 

Beginning in March of 2018 the Missouri Credentialing Board, in partnership with the Department of Behavioral Health (DBH), will train and credential peers across the state with one standard curriculum providing them with the tools they need to use their personal story to provide support to all individuals in recovery from substance use, mental health, or co-occurring disorders.  DBH will recognize one peer credential—The Certified Peer Specialist. Basic training for peers has been and will continue to be free of charge. Click here or on the image to the left for more information and upcoming training dates.


Missouri Opioid STR Recovery Goals:
