Collaborating with community stakeholders to help serve underserved populations

Peer Support Services

The advice of 'experts' or authorities does not always have the greatest motivational impact in behavior change.

Sometimes the credentialed training of someone outside one's peer group just helps to highlight differences and promote a feeling of not being understood.

Peer Support Specialists are people who use their lived experiences to assist others in moving forward to achieve their goals.

This comprehensive training delivers a foundation of peer support intervention skills and ethical practices. This training provides an atmosphere that is conducive to learning core philosophies, helper attitudes, concepts and skills related to peer support.

At the end of the training participants will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of utilizing peers in HIV/AIDS treatment adherence
  • Identify who would be appropriate to work as a peer
  • Identify critical aspects of the peer - client relationship

Our trainings are available to directly funded community based organizations, some state funded organizations and organizations working with HIV positive and at risk populations, free of charge.

Please request trainings using the CBA Request Information System (CRIS) and ask for NCHP.

In some circumstances, if you are unable to access the system directly, your local health department may be able to request on your behalf.
