Here are some tips on where to find a Peer Specialist Supervisor:
1. Check with your Organization
This might sound obvious, but sometimes organizations can be so big that it might not be clear that there is someone with a PSS certification on staff. Check with your manager or HR person and ask if there is an on staff PSS who might be able to supervise you.
2. Check with your Training Entity
If you have completed Peer Specialist training, your instructors may know supervisors in your area, or have on staff supervisors that could help you. Reach out to your training entity and see if they can help you.
3. Contact other Peer Organizations
Reach out to Peer Organizations in your area and ask if they have any Peer Specialist Supervisors on staff. You can also inquire about any upcoming trainings or events where you may have the opportunity to network with potential supervisors.
