Welcome to the Nebraska Certified Peer Support Specialist Core Curriculum Training Program!

The Division of Behavioral Health Office of Consumer Affairs is pleased to announce the release of the 2019 Peer Support Core Curriculum guidelines and the online submission form.  These guidelines were developed by the DBH Office of Consumer Affairs in collaboration with consumers, educators, providers and peers.  The Guidelines are structured to meet or exceed the standards prepared by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) and are aligned with the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services administration (SAMHSA) core competencies for peer support. 

The OCA webpage includes a link to the online Curriculum Submission form to be completed by any entity who wishes to be approved to provide Peer Support Core Curriculum training in the State of Nebraska.

The Certified Peer Support Specialist application and certification process and the  online CPSS application is available for anyone who has met the certification criteria and wishes to apply.
