Recertification Process

After the initial certification, we ask faith leaders to continue their journey in learning about the behavioral health challenges that people face.  The recertification process can easily be achieved by going through at least three trainings in a two-year time span. Some of the trainings consist of Suicide Prevention, Trauma Informed Care/Approach, Adverse Childhood Experiences, Mental Health First Aid, Basics of Mental Health, and The Addicted Mind. These, and many other trainings are available at no cost to our partners and can be found in our Educational Services Packet link. If desired, the partner is welcome to host a faith forum in which the Faith-Based Community Coordinator and Lifeline Peer Project Coordinator introduce various aspects of recovery, resources, and services to the congregation, community of faith, and community at large. The forums are excellent means of outreach, allowing the community to learn about our partners and see how much they care.

If you haven't recertified in the past two years, please do so using the form at this link.
