A Survey for Parent Peer Support Providers

Date: September 09, 2020

Exploring the Impact of COVID-19 on 
Parent Peer Support: 
A Survey for Parent Peer Support Providers

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way healthcare, including parent peer support, is delivered. FREDLA has developed this brief survey to better understand the ways in which parent peer support has adapted to continue supporting families throughout the pandemic and to illuminate the challenges and benefits of these adaptations and innovations.

Parent peer support providers may have different titles such as parent partners, family support partners, or peer specialists. For the purposes of this survey, the term parent peer support provider (PPSP) is used and defined as a person with experience as a primary caregiver of a child or youth with emotional, behavioral, and/or substance use needs who is employed to provide one
-to-one support to a family/caregiver of a child, youth or young adult (up to age 21) with mental health or behavioral health needs. 

Please note that this survey does not pertain to youth or adult peer support or recovery support providers.

The 25 question survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
All responses are confidential and data collected will be used to inform workforce development, technical assistance, and future advocacy and research efforts.

Thank you for all you do for the families and for taking the time to respond to this survey.
