What are the employment opportunities?

DBHR provides entry level training for Certified Peer Counselors, but training is not a guarantee of employment. You  must have the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed by employers for specific jobs. Positions also require lived experience, sometimes in specific areas such as Veterans, homelessness, or family experiences.  

Although opportunities for employment are increasing, they can be limited depending on your region. The DBHR Office of Consumer Partnership maintains a distribution list for information about available positions, but positions are more often advertised locally and on internet job search sites. Employment opportunities are expected to continue to increase.
