First Ever Certified Peer Counselor Conference is a Success!

May 1, 2017

The WSU Behavioral Health Workforce Collaborative and Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery were very pleased to host the first annual Certified Peer Counselor conference, Peer Pathways, on September 15th and 16th. More than 200 peers from across Washington State came together for workshops ranging in topics from first episode psychosis to motivational interviewing to supported employment. This is the first time that the state has brought Certified Peer Counselors together in the same place!

We will continue to add links to the presentations below. We look forward to seeing you next year!
