Community Access’ new ThriveAtWork Peer Training will prepare hundreds of New Yorkers for peer specialist certification, while supporting trainees to pursue meaningful careers in the mental health workforce.
We seek applicants with diverse experiences and backgrounds. People with mental health conditions who also have co-experiences such as a history of incarceration, substance use, homelessness, military service, identify as LGBT, and/or identify with a racially or ethnically marginalized group, are strongly encouraged to apply. We are also eager to work with individuals who speak multiple languages, to help meet the growing demand for multilingual peer specialists in the behavioral health workforce. Trainees who speak Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese are in particularly high demand.
