Alaska DBH Webinar Series – Strengthening Peer Support in Alaska

Alaskans have worked to develop Peer Support for many years. The impact of peers providing services can be transformational for a behavioral health system. We have been excited to see a recent increase in the hiring of peers in our state. Since 2017, the Division of Behavioral Health has made a concentrated effort with a diverse group of stakeholders to develop a Certification and Training Program for Peer Providers and also to promote a system of care that is based on the expectation of recovery. This webinar series will cover many of the issues that are key to strengthening recovery in Alaska.

This 6-part Webinar Series on Peer Support is a free webinar series which was created with partners from the SAMHSA-funded technical assistance group BRSS-TACS. They have reached out to a number of nationally recognized figures in the field of Peer Support and Recovery to contribute to a unique and high quality series exclusively for Alaska. Each webinar will be moderated by a local Alaskan contributing to moving our state’s peer support efforts forward. We encourage you to attend all sessions or just individual sessions which work for your schedule and interests.
