PreventEd’s Speaker Series is a monthly event that provides a forum for networking, learning, and advocacy regarding the use and misuse of alcohol and other drugs. Participation is open to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the challenges and opportunities in addressing substance use.
|This month’s topic is “Elevating and Empowering the Peer Workforce” by Emily Stuckey, CEO of ARCHway Institute and Interim Executive Director of NPRA.|
ARCHway Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides education, peer support, and financial assistance to increase access to treatment and recovery resources for individuals, families, and communities impacted by substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Emily Stuckey (Jung) will elaborate on ARCHway’s services with a focus on it’s new initiative through partnership with the National Peer Recovery Alliance (NPRA). In addition, we will look at the Missouri affiliate of NPRA (NPRA-MO) and discuss what this coalition of peer workers in the state of Missouri is hoping to accomplish in 2022.
NPRA is a consortium of peer workers from across the country that has come together to elevate and empower the peer workforce. Overall, NPRA strives to be a voice for peer workers on a national level while also, strengthening and growing the peer workforce, so that peers can meet the needs of those they are serving. Emily will discuss the overarching goals and current steps NPRA is taking to support the workforce.
