Dear Peer Specialists,
My name is Martha Barbone and I am Interim Director of Operations for iNAPS. We are collaborating with Wallis Adams at the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation at Boston University to conduct a study to better understand how the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic has impacted the work and volunteer lives of peer specialists in the US.
I am writing to invite all peer specialists (including peer supporters, peer support providers, peer coaches, etc.) to participate in the online survey that has been constructed by the Center and iNAPS. The survey will take approximately 15-30 minutes. Participation is completely voluntary and your answers will be anonymous. The survey information will be sent directly to the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation for them to analyze and to describe the findings. We will report the findings back to you through email or a newsletter.
If a participant would like to provide their email address, they can enter a random drawing where 10 participants will win a $50 gift certificate to Amazon. The Center will be randomly selecting 10 winners after the survey closes.
If you are willing to help us out with this important research, please follow the link here: https://protect2.fireeye.com/url?k=1b3baaec-476fb390-1b3b9bd3-0cc47adc5fa2-cb504f73e1e7dd55&u=https://bostonu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6rPQh6cUpqaoPdj
There will also be an opportunity to complete a second, follow-up survey in approximately 3 months. Participation in that second survey is completely voluntary, and completing this first survey doesn’t mean that you have to complete the second one.
Please feel free to forward this survey to peer specialists and peer organizations that you know! That way, we can get a better sense of what changes are occurring.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the person conducting the survey (Dr. Adams) at email@example.com.
