Learn about Forensic Peer Support through the lens of lived experience.

Forensic Peer Support Training

Our Forensic Peer Support Training is a continuing education opportunity for Peer Supporters. The training is designed to fill gaps in supportive services for justice involved individuals. The training offers a mutual-learning approach that is grounded in the philosophy and fundamentals of peer support.

We will share information about techniques and resources to support individuals navigating within and beyond the criminal justice systems.

The topics will include:
