WAITLIST OPEN Peer Support Leader Training
This course is accredited by OCN NI and all participants who complete the program and assessment will receive a Level 3 Peer Support Worker Certificate
Our signature training program allows people who have lived experience of perinatal mental illness to use their experiences to help and support others.
Our intensive 10-week program covers recovery language, peer support modeling, communication skills, safeguarding, and more.
All students who complete the assessment will be supported by We Are Pangs to set up support groups in their own communities or to deliver one-to-one peer support.
We will be running our next block of training in May and are now taking expressions of interest.
We are hoping to deliver all of this course face to face, however, with the uncertainty around COVID-19, there may be occasions when we need to move the class online. In this instance, we will use Zoom to facilitate classes.
Following the successful completion of the course, you will be given full support to set up your own We Are Pangs peer support group including booking of venues, advertising of the group, and a listening ear should you encounter problems while running the group. For the first year, this support is free. For each year following we ask for a voluntary contribution of £30 per year to assist us to cover the costs.
You must be able to attend the full course in order to become accredited. Please do not take space if you can’t attend every class.
