LA Peer Support Specialist Supervisor Training Application

The Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) is excited to announce our partnership with The Extra Mile Region IV to offer you our newly developed LA Core Peer Support Specialist Supervisor Training. We encourage anyone who supervises or directly works with Peer Support Specialists to complete an application to participate in this valuable training.

As many are aware, OBH recently developed our LA Core Peer Support Specialist Training and began offering that training to peers in the fall of 2022. The new Peer Support Specialist training has brought tremendous clarity in the role, purpose and value of utilizing LA Recognized Peer Support Specialists (RPSS), along with positive feedback and outcomes from the Peer Support Specialists.  This new training prompted us to consider revamping and offering a LA Peer Supervisor Training that would complement that training bringing these values directly to those supervising Peer Support Specialists and/or working directly with Peer Support Specialists.

Our LA Peer Support Specialist Supervisor training is a live, instructor-led, two-day training held via zoom, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the dates noted on this website. Space is limited and please note there are deadlines for submission. Additionally, there are two prerequisite training modules required and must be taken prior to completing your online application. The certificates offered at completion of each of these two modules should be uploaded with your online application. These modules take approximately two (2) hours each and can be taken at the time and pace you choose.  Once your application and certificates are reviewed you will be contacted with your training date options. 

After completion of the two-day training, you will be offered a link to an anonymous evaluation of these trainings.  Your feedback matters so please consider taking a minute or two to complete an evaluation.

If you have any questions relating to this training or its processes, please feel free to contact Jamie Tindle, OBH Peer Coordinator at [email protected] or George Mills, The Extra Mile Region IV at [email protected].
