The Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) is initiating the first Pennsylvania statewide survey of trained Certified Peer Specialists to better understand CPS training and employment experiences. OMHSAS is receiving assistance from the University of Pennsylvania Collaborative on Community Integration (www.upennrrtc.org) and the Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition (http://www.pmhca.org/?page=coal).The purpose is to collect data to support the value of peer support as a service. The survey is open to anyone who has completed the CPS training in PA, regardless of your current work status (i.e., unemployed, employed full- or part-time, volunteer) or the types of position you are in (e.g., peer specialist/peer support, case manager, advocacy, policy advisor, county administrator, etc.) The link to the survey is: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DDM8X8K. Closing date for responding to the survey is March 15, 2010. FMI: Contact Olga Levshits at email@example.com.
