Become a Certified Peer Specialist

A Certified Peer Specialist is an individual who has received specialized training in using his or her own recovery story to help others. Not only is 4ABHN interested in pointing African Americans to effective behavioral health resources and supports, but we are also committed to encouraging more African Americans to use their own experiences as persons in recovery to benefit others within their communities.

Via Hope, a grantee of the Hogg Foundation, offers a wide range of training opportunities to individuals in recovery from mental illness and their families. For more information, visit the Via Hope website.
