Peer Recovery Center of Excellence
The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence is led by a steering committee of national peer recovery leaders from across the nation: Sharon Hesseltine (Chair), Haner Hernandez, Nell Hurley, Michael King, Mark Sanders, and Zac Talbott.
UMKC’s partners in the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence are: University of Texas Austin, University of Wisconsin, and the National Council for Behavioral Health.
The Center’s strategies for training and technical assistance are organized into the following core areas of focus:
- Clinical integration of peer support workers into non-traditional settings;
- Building and strengthening capacity of Recovery Community Organizations;
- Enhancing the professionalization of peers through workforce development;
- Providing evidence-based and practice-based toolkits and resource information to diverse stakeholders.
In addition, the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence is a resource to individuals, organizations and systems working to advance the successful implementation of peer support model of recovery in an array of settings.
