The NC Certified Peer Support Specialist (NCCPSS) program will be making changes to the course submission and review process to go into effect in July, 2018. As a result of these upcoming changes, the Behavioral Health Springboard (BHS) will not be accepting new courses for review, effective immediately.
We understand the inconvenience this situation may cause persons interested in submitting new courses but the course review committee has a number of courses under review and would like to focus and complete these reviews before the new changes take effect in July, 2018.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Bernice Adjabeng, Program Manager
Tara Bohley, Director, Behavioral Health Springboard
