PS 101 Goes Virtual
MPN is launching its first virtual 40-hour Peer Support 101 training August 3! With the spread of COVID-19 increasing across the state we want to be sure that our trainings are safe yet still accessible. Behavioral health agencies continue to hire peer support staff and the applications continue to flow in daily. This has motivated us to convert to a virtual learning experience.
The content remains the same, the passion for peer support continues to be strong. Recovery is alive and well across the state. We will have additional virtual PS 101 trainings August 24-28 and September 14-18.
Please visit our PS101 page for virtual classroom information and to complete an application.
