Join Training for Employers of Certified Peer Recovery Supporters
OhioPRO has partnered with OhioMHAS in establishing five (5) technical assistance centers, or eLicensing Hubs, throughout the State. These Hubs are primarily responsible for providing technical assistance to certified peers who have questions regarding recertification or to those individuals seeking certification for the first time. These five Hubs have also developed a training for the employers of certified peer recovery supporters. The training is designed to help employers understand the requirements for recertification, background checks, and other rule changes so that they are in a better position to provide assistance to their certified peer employees. The training is on Nov. 16th at 11 a.m. and will last one hour. Interested employers of certified peers can register here.
Needs Portal Update
The Needs Portal has implemented the Primary Parent checkbox. In order for it to be used in the quarterly timeline report, caseworkers will need to be sure to select who the primary parent is on a case or there will not be a primary parent identified for the cases. If it is easier to send Needs Portal staff a list of cases and indicate who the primary parent is, they can check that off for the correct parent. Please email email@example.com for questions.
Attend Ohio START Coaching Calls
Coaching calls will continue to be held quarterly and may be attended by any Ohio START staff. They will be on the same date and time, the first and second Thursday of the month, from 9 a.m.-10 a.m. The same content will be covered at each session, so you only need attend one of the days.
