Program Development Guide

Part II: Program Development

Whether you plan to develop a peer support program from the ground up, or by adapting an existing program, an effective and sustainable program requires careful assessment of organizational and community capacity, clearly-described protocols, appropriate process to recruit and select peer supporters, and proper training before peer supporters’ deployment.

This part introduces key steps, considerations, and resources to help you plan a program, assess community and organizational readiness, as well as recruit, select and train peer supporters.
