THRIVE University will be providing FREE education and training for Certified Recovery Peer Advocates who are new to and/or working in the field. Our experienced team of professionals will be developing trainings based on feedback from those in the field and the community partners we work with.
THRIVE University will also have weekly Professional Support Groups for CRPAs working in the field, facilitated by an LCSW-R. These groups will be a safe place to discuss challenges and receive support from your colleagues. Please stay tuned. Anticipated start date for trainings will be in May.
