Peer Programming With First Responders: Front Line Collaboration

This session focuses on how supervisors and administrative team members can:

  • Set a programmatic context in which both peers and first responders are encouraged to build their personal knowledge and ability to provide support that is collaborative and responsive to participant needs.
  • Identify common challenges that organizations face when providing peer support alongside first-response services.
  • Describe the steps necessary for building your organization’s capacity for providing peer support in collaboration with first-response services.
  • Explore how Hamilton County, Indiana; Butler County, Ohio; and the Council of Southeast Pennsylvania are implementing this collaboration within their programs and organizations among justice-involved populations.


Our presenters have a broad range of experience developing and implementing peer support mechanisms in collaboration with first-response programs in criminal justice settings:
