Peer-to-peer interventions and support have become a central part of the mental health and substance use recovery movement and behavioral health providers employ peer specialists and people in recovery for wellness initiatives. When leveraged effectively, peers can play a vital role in both tobacco cessation and cancer control because they provide experiential knowledge and act as role models to encourage wellness activities. Join this webinar to explore ways to fund and integrate peers into your programs.
During this webinar, attendees will:
- Understand the role of peers as coaches in whole health and wellness;
- Learn about evidence-based and best practices used to maximize the impact of peers for wellness initiatives; and
- Identify Medicaid reimbursement and other opportunities to finance peers.
