Initial Request for Information for the Advisory Committee

The Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (DMHSAS) will soon begin holding the Peer Run Respite (PRR) Advisory Committee Meetings. Thanks to all who expressed interest in being part of this committee. In September, the committee will focus on what is happening in other states regarding PRR. In October, the group would like to focus on what is happening in the state of Wisconsin related to Peer Run Respite. We know that we here within the Division don’t always know everything that is happening around the state, so we are looking for individuals who operate or are in the process of opening peer run respites in Wisconsin, who would be interested in sharing information about their programs with the committee. Since there is no specific definition of PRR yet, DMHSAS is looking for examples of peer run - peer support that is offered outside of regular day time hours and to individuals in crisis or increased need. Please contact Faith Boersma if you are interested in sharing this information. Thank you in advance for your participation in this project!
