What is Family Peer Support: Family Peer Support (FPS) is a peer-to-peer approach to supporting families caring for children, youth, and young adults with behavioral, mental, emotional, or co-occurring challenges.  FPS is provided by a parent or caregiver with lived experience who is trained to assist other families by providing support, identifying resources, and facilitating access to services for the child and family.

Description:  Parent-to-parent peer support builds effective engagement and can facilitate more positive outcomes for a family. This one-to-one, face-to-face intensive work is provided by trained  caregivers with lived experience and is usually offered in the family’s home and community based upon the family’s schedule and preference. Sessions and length of service varies based upon the needs of the family, programmatic guidelines and funding requirements. Family Peer Support Providers can be employed in positions across the spectrum of service intensity levels, from trainers and community education, to individual parent support and care coordination, to a functioning member of a treatment team in a residential or inpatient setting. Regardless of their position or service program, it is important that FPSs receive training on the core competencies and skill sets of parent peer support. The FREDLA FPS Practice Model offers this essential training, as well as training in effective supervision of the FPS workforce and coaching for trainers of the Practice Model.

Who Should Attend This Training: Anyone who currently has or will have a position as a Family Peer Support Provider.  (Family Peer Support Providers can be called many different names, such as Parent Peer Support,  Family/Peer Partners, Family/Peer Navigators or Family/Peer Support Specialists)

Requirements: Lived experience as the primary caregiver for a child with behavioral, mental, emotional, or co-occurring challenges.  Willingness to disclose your status as a caregiver and use that experience in a professional capacity.  High school diploma or GED.
