I just applied for the Georgia Certified Peer Specialist training. The training takes place in the beginning of February and will last two weeks. Last time I applied and was denied because there were so many applicants, I hope this time I will get into the training program.
This training is very important to me because it is recognized by the state and will officially allow me to guide others on their path to recovery. This will give me more experience on how to help others. Plus this certification will prove to others that I am serious about my goal to help other people living with a mental illness. Please wish me luck, and I keep you posted on my status!
