Forensic Peer Support Training

Forensic Peer Support Training

August 19th-August 21st
Location TBD

Forensic Peer Support (FPS) is a person-centered, strength based support system offered to individuals who are or have been involved in the criminal justice system. Forensic Peer Support starts from initial contact with law enforcement all the way through re-entry into the community after release from incarceration.  There is no specific credentialing in North Carolina for FPS, the hope is that we can build up the workforce of folks trained with this expertise and lived experience!

What they do:

  • Support people during their involvement in the Criminal Justice System
  • Promote Recovery Principles including Self-Advocacy
  • Advocate for recipients of behavioral healthcare when they are unable to advocate for themselves
  • Educate all stakeholders in the Criminal Justice System about Mental health Recovery
  • Inspire hope through shared life experiences
