About Vaya Health’s 40-hour PSS Training
Peer Support Specialists are messengers of hope who are essential in increasing positive outcomes for individuals on their recovery paths. Specialists share their own experiences to help others, and the training offered by Vaya Health meets the guidelines of North Carolina’s Certified Peer Support Specialist Program.
Vaya Health’s trainers have firsthand experience working as Peer Support Specialists, giving them the unique perspective to guide individuals through the course. Activities and discussions provide insight into what it is like to work with peers in recovery. Participants will also learn ways to monitor their own wellness to sustain their recovery and support others on their recovery journeys. The class is interactive, and participants are encouraged to share their perspective throughout the training.
