MSER Webinar with Dr. Wallis E. Adams (Dec. 7th, 2022) – The Peer Support Specialist Workforce During Covid-19: Changes, Challenges, and Opportunities

November 26, 2022

Ever wonder what researchers are finding out about employment for people with mental illnesses/mental health conditions? BUCPR is pleased to present "Making Sense of Employment Research", a webinar series designed to discuss a recent published research study in a clear and relevant way, even for those who know little or nothing about research. The COVID-19 related lockdowns of 2020 impacted all of us - including Peer Support. This webinar will explore how PSS experienced these changes, including challenges and benefits. Dr. Wallis E. Adams will review major findings from two national surveys of PSS conducted in May and December 2020, and discuss how lessons from this data can inform the future of the Peer Support Workforce. Dr. Wallis E. Adams is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at CSU East Bay in Hayward, CA., where she teaches courses related to the sociology of mental health, medical sociology, and research methods. Prior to this, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Boston University's Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation. Her research focuses on recovery-oriented services, peer support, implementation science, stigma, and organizational culture.
