Onboarding peer supporters

To have a smooth onboarding of peer supporters, the managing team should clarify the following:

  • What training will be provided
  • To whom the peer supporter can go for supervision and guidance
  • The peer supporter responsibilities to ensure a clear understanding of boundaries in the role
  • The importance of privacy and confidentiality policies as a critical responsibility of peer supporters

As part of onboarding, the new peer supporters could also agree to the responsibilities of their role by signing documents such as codes of conduct, peer support limitations and boundaries, confidentiality agreements, etc.
