SAMHSA’s Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) invites you to join national experts in a conversation about providing digital peer recovery support services for people with mental illness and substance use disorders.
The event will explore the practical aspects of using technology to offer peer recovery support services, including assessing which platform to use; how to engage people with technology; digital communication skills; technology literacy and usage skills; and consent, privacy, and confidentiality.
Our experts will offer practical advice, resources, and lessons learned from their collective experience developing, evaluating, and providing various forms of digital peer recovery support services.
Join us for this free, interactive virtual event moderated by Devin Reaves, BRSS TACS Subject Matter Expert.
