National Post-Traumatic Growth Through Peer Support

National Post-Traumatic Growth Through Peer Support

Tuesday, March 8, 2022

2:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM PT

We have endured global-scale trauma. To experience widespread post-traumatic growth post-pandemic, access to mental healthcare must be greatly expanded; yet, the mental health provider shortage hampers our ability to heal as a nation. Peer support is a care modality that can fill the gap due to its broad community appeal, even among those less likely to pursue traditional mental health care –namely vulnerable populations, men, and all ranges of the age spectrum. Online, on-demand 24/7 access to a national peer-to-peer support network can improve the coping and healing process of millions across the United States.

Join us for this 60-minute webinar where we will discuss:

  • Why do we need to embrace the concept of post-traumatic growth, and how does it apply to all of us in the COVID era?
  • What populations are more likely to access peer support than other mental health care modalities?
  • How can online, on-demand peer support help individuals after trauma, in a way that is genuinely accessible?

This webinar will be recorded and available to the public within one week. We do not offer CEUs, but certificates of attendance will be available upon request after the event.
