Growing Veterans peer support training was developed by veterans and mental health professionals, it is designed for veterans, civilians and organizations committed to the wellness of our returning veterans. Learning objectives include recognizing the symptoms, causes and cycles of stress and PTSD, and facilitating healthy conversations and outcomes, by the use of nationally recognized best practices in peer support.
We offer our unique peer support training both on and off-site, with various dates available during the year. Participants can register to attend one of our pre-scheduled training retreats or we can send our training staff to your company or organization for a private in-house training experience.
“In order to enjoy the nourishment of the harvest, first you must have the tools to till the field. This weekend Veterans and Community Members of The Mission Continues Puget Sound experienced the power of peer support from Growing Veterans, a new framework to be better guides to our fellow warriors and our community. Built on the foundation of Veteran fellowship, strengthened through the latest advances in evidence-driven therapeutic practice, and polished with the timeless truths of earth-based healing, it empowers us to do what we do best, to move with a purpose for the bond of brother and sisterhood. On the farm, on a run, in response to disasters, in the classroom, at a service project, on deployment, in the street, anywhere; trauma can overwhelm or unite us. It can paralyze or mobilize. Through intention and practice we march willingly in to battle again, our vulnerabilities and scars arming us with the power to lift ourselves, each other, and our loved ones towards safety and victory. Thank you GV, we are indebted.”
