This training will focus on understanding the landscape of organizations in participant’s communities and how best to identify strategic partners to strengthen peer support programming. With limited resources and limited time, identifying who in your community best aligns with your program’s values and needs is critical to increasing participant, effectiveness, and impact. Participants will gain an understanding of strategic thinking, different approaches to building partnerships, creating MOUs and other forms of agreement, and becoming clearer on program needs and promotion.
