DBSA is in the running to win a $350,000 grant to create a DBSA Peer Leadership Center. The center would be a centralized online resource and training center, offering resources, scholarships, and information to potential and current Peer Specialists.
The DBSA Peer Leadership Center will allow peers to search for and complete the necessary training and continuing education courses online or in person. Peers will be able to network through online forums and access a central archive of information and resources on peer support services and the peer specialist profession and standards. DBSA will also send out eNews and social media announcements sharing information on peer support services.
If awarded the $350,000 grant from Humana, DBSA will begin the establishment of this resource with a focus on northeastern Illinois using a replicable model that can then be used to bring the project to scale as a national resource.
