The Empowered Life: Recovery Support Peer Training is a 40-hour hands-on learning curriculum created to train Peer Support Specialists who are or who will be providing behavioral health services to individuals with mental health and/or substance use issues. Our mission is to enhance the personal well-being of others by fostering a caring and supportive environment in which individuals can learn and advance in their lives, relationships, and communities. We believe that through advocacy, education, and support, we can instill hope and determination in the lives of individuals in recovery. The Empowered Life: Recovery Support Peer Training hands-on approach affords participants the opportunity to learn through real life experiences and scenarios used to equip them for a successful career as a NC Certified Peer Support Specialist. Our ultimate goal is to prepare participants with the knowledge and skills needed to enter the workforce immediately upon completion of this course. We encourage each participant to “get empowered” and help others live an Empowered Life!
