Those who identify as peer counselors are also welcome to attend the afternoon session, which focuses on the role of peer counselors in a professional setting. Sessions will cover how peer counselors promote a mental health care organization’s missions, supervision of peer counselors, and how peer counselors promote wellness and model recovery. The morning session is from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the afternoon session is from 1-4 p.m. Lunch will be provided for $5.
