Peer support connects people who have shared lived experiences. Whether you are a mom who has experienced post-partum depression, a veteran with PTSD, or someone in recovery from an addiction, you can become more effective at supporting others through our Peer Support Certificate program delivered online.
Our Peer Support Certificate program offers a practicum experience that enables students to work within a specialized peer support setting tailored to their current work, volunteer position or area of interest. This 9-credit certificate can be completed in one year or over three semesters.
Credits can later be applied to undergraduate requirements for an A.S. or B.S. degree in Psychiatric Rehabilitation at Rutgers University. Credits earned may also be applied to undergraduate degrees offered by other colleges and universities depending on the program requirements.
