I "set out for the open road" and went to western NC to receive my initial peer training in Asheville. I chose Andrea Morris Consulting due to her extensive training experience having trained over 500 peers in NC. I caught up with her a while back to ask her to reflect upon some of her life experiences.
Q: Andrea looking back on all that you have accomplished as a statewide trainer and peer supervisor, reflect on your experiences for a moment...what feelings "rise up"?
I have been providing Peer Support Specialist training for a little over 5 years and I can say one thing for certain: This has been the most rewarding of my life's work thus far! I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities to not only share information but to receive knowledge and inspiration as well from this incredibly strong and determined group of individuals. It's been like having a front row seat to the greatest show on earth-the true resilience of the human spirit!
Q: What are some the great rewards you have experienced as being a statewide trainer and peer supervisor?
"As the role of peers continues to develop and unfold, we find ourselves at the threshold of great opportunities to better serve individuals and increase the overall health of our communities."
