Learning Exchange Session: Incorporating Peer Workers into CSC Programs

This resource was selected by SMI Adviser content partners and approved by the SMI Adviser clinical expert team for inclusion in the knowledge base.

Meaningfully engaging persons who are experiencing a first episode of psychosis in care can be challenging for a number of reasons.  Increasingly, teams are attempting to integrate persons with lived experience on their treatment teams to improve engagement and enrich the team’s perspective on issues in first episode psychosis. This learning exchange addresses these issues through a moderated discussion with individuals who have successfully integrated persons with lived experience into their programs.

Sascha DuBrul from OnTrackNY, Chad Jones from the Viewpoint program in Georgia, along with a Georgia SMHA representative lead the discussion in what proved to be a vibrant exchange of ideas.
