Peer Navigators Support People with Serious Mental Illness-- Session 3: Implementation of Peer Navigator Programs"

SAMHSA’s Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) is pleased to announce the final webinar in a three-part virtual learning series on peer navigators. Peer navigators are people with lived experience who help individuals receiving services meet their health needs in an often fragmented health care system. They build professional relationships to assist with arranging or getting to doctor’s appointments, lab tests, office procedures, clinic visits, counselor meetings, pharmacies, and support services. The National Institutes of Health and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute developed and evaluated peer navigator programs in three federally funded projects. These projects focus on individuals living with a diagnosis of schizophrenia and/or bipolar disorder, individuals who have experienced homelessness, and the use of peer navigators in integrated health care.
