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.

Who should attend: Law Enforcement, Fire Department, EMTs, First Responders working in Stark County.

About this event: 

Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery supports the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training of law enforcement professionals in our community. Crucial to reducing violence and ensuring successful intervention of mental health and substance use situations, officers are trained in proven and effective communication techniques.

The CIT model was first developed and implemented in 1988 by the Memphis, Tennessee Police Department. The Team was developed to address the special challenges to law enforcement posed by persons with mental illness and to better serve the community.

Local training is led by StarkMHAR and Law Enforcement Partners and involves area mental health/drug and alcohol service providers, NAMI of Stark County, and consumers of mental health/drug and alcohol services and their families. This specialized training has the following goals:

  • To better prepare police officers to handle crises involving people with mental illness and substance use disorders
  • To increase mental health/substance use consumer safety
  • To increase law enforcement officer safety
  • To increase the feeling of safety in the general community
  • To make the mental health/drug and alcohol system more understandable, accessible and responsive to law enforcement to the greatest extent possible with community resources
  • To divert persons with mental illness/substance use disorders to the mental health/substance use system, when appropriate, and not to incarceration

Since 2004, Stark County’s CIT Training program has certified hundreds of officers and first responders. Comprehensive 40-hour courses have been provided twice each calendar year. Law enforcement officers are selected by their Chiefs, Sheriff or their designers to attend this training. Participants should be volunteers and ideally should have good communication and interpersonal skills. The goal for all law enforcement agencies is to have, at a minimum, 25% of their first responders trained.
