State Peer Workforce Needs Assessment with the Oregon Peer Delivered Services Coalition, a project of MHAAO

We are offering two surveys: one for the Peer Workforce and one for Peer Employers. We hope that the final report will be shared far and wide to inform policies and promote systemic change.

We would like to thank our Steering Committee, Advisory and Evaluation Committee, and everyone who gave feedback during the process of creating this assessment. We are grateful to the Office of Equity and Inclusion with the Traditional Health Worker Program for sharing their time and resources with us to make this happen!
