We invite primary caregivers with “lived experience” raising a child with emotional, behavioral, mental health or substance use challenges to attend our Parent Peer Support Provider Trainings May 5-6, 2017. Trainings will be offered in Greenville and Marion, SC. Peer Support is one of the most successful and requested of services available within a system of care. Many child and family serving agencies are partnering with Parent Support Providers because of improved services and outcomes for families. In this training, you will learn how to assist families with identifying formal and informal supports, reduce isolation of family members while promoting trust and hope, and provide families with skills needed to make informed decisions. Spaces are limited so please call us today at 803-772-5210/toll free 866-779-0402 more information!
