SCI Camp Hill held its semi-annual Certified Peer Support Specialist roundtable meeting on Dec. 7. The roundtable provides an opportunity for the CPS to address any issues or successes within the CPS program. In addition, new CPSs were recognized with certificates for completing their two-week CPS training and joining current CPSs in their work. Current CPSs were also recognized for their continued dedication and service within the institution. The roundtable was attended by upper management, psychology staff, counselors and CPS supervisors. Various issues were discussed, such as having to address inmate concerns over visitation and providing services during lockdowns. Many CPSs shared successes and ease of working with staff in all areas, including the restricted housing unit and diversionary treatment unit. Institutional staff of all areas continue to appreciate the value of this program and the services provided by the CPSs within SCI Camp Hill.
