Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services “Peer Support Specialist Curriculum Approval Process”

Kentucky

The Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DBHDID) will approve the following curricula for Peer Support Specialists (PSS): Adult Peer Support Specialist, Family Peer Support Specialist, Youth Peer Support Specialist, and Kentucky Family Leadership Academy, as established in the Kentucky Administrative Regulations.

The regulations provide the curriculum applicant with an understanding of the requirements for peer support specialists—both eligibility and training—and specifically speak to the elements of a "training curriculum" and the training requirements (testing of the trainee and evaluation of the trainers).
