Peer Leadership Institute

The Peer Leadership Institute (PLI) is a one-year workforce development project that will serve peer providers in a four-county contiguous region of the Northern San Francisco Bay Area.

Through a contract funded by the Office of Statewide Health Planning & Development (OSHPD), the PLI will engage individuals with lived experience as consumers, family members, parents and caregivers who are currently employed or are volunteers in the public mental health system in Contra Costa, Solano, Sonoma and Napa Counties.
