Peer Support Specialist Certification


Since 2009, Painted Brain has been advocating for peer-driven services using the recovery model and in September 2020, Senate Bill 803 was finally passed. SB 803 recognizes the value of peer support and allows for state funding through Medi-Cal to be accessed for individuals with lived experience that are certified in the Peer Support Specialist 17 Core Competencies to bill for peer services such as peer counseling. Well before its recognition, Painted Brain was prepared with its 17 Core Competencies for Peer Support Specialist curriculum and applied to become a state certified training body for Peer Support Specialists Certification in the state of California. We’re pleased to announce, we are now a certified training body for the state of California.
