International Association of Peer Supporters 12th Annual Conference

"Reinforcing Our Roots: Designing Our Future"

December 3-5, 2018

The conference will be held in Orlando, Florida at the

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Studios

The conference will be offering 2 1/2 days of workshops, caucuses and keynote speakers beginning Monday morning and continuing until noon on Wednesday. The call for proposals and registration are now available.

As our theme suggests, we will be reinforcing the values of peer support, as well as looking to the future as we increase our presence in many varied settings. We are asking all workshops to relate to  the National Practice Guidelines and will have opportunities to discuss the Guidelines and offer suggestions for additions and revisions as we design our future. We hope to have workshops that connect us to all settings including mental health, substance use, whole health and integrated care, forensics, youth and young adult, older adults, veterans, LGBTQ, and more. We also will welcome those involved in peer support as Family Partners.
