Monthly Workshop – Peer Support in Emergency Response
December 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Peer support has been used successfully in emergency departments and mobile crisis outreach. Use of peer support in emergency response can increase the likelihood of continued engagement in recovery for the person served.
However, many people in charge of emergency departments and emergency response are not aware of peer support and evidence to support it. This is where we, as peer support, can advocate for our inclusion in these services!
Join our conversation with Tamara Nuñez and Rod Courtney as they describe their work to integrate peer support with emergency services in their local areas. We will discuss where peer support can be used, starting conversations with hospital or emergency response representatives, and the possibility of expanding these services to other parts of the state.
