Peers are an important component of supporting people experiencing homelessness in accessing health care and navigating complex support systems. During COVID, peers have taken on expanded roles with different types of engagement like telehealth. This webinar will feature peer staff and individuals who supervise peers to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on peer support work and behavioral health. This will include a discussion about the particular challenges and strategies for recruiting and orienting peers.
