From a psychology perspective, Dr. Lee can offer:
- Consultation regarding structure, recruitment, screening, training, members’ ongoing support of each other, self-care and boundary-setting, maintaining members’ wellness and health
- Training & workshops
- Clinical lead services for ongoing “supervision” of the peer support members to help cope with the impacts of helping others, risk of compassion fatigue, and of course their own operational stressors from work
- Safeguarding or mental health “check-ups” of peer support team members to help protect their own health and wellness
- Design and implementation of peer support contact tracking. Having anonymous and non-identifiable information can help teams know what types of issues members are seeking support for and whether more resources are needed.
