Contact Hubs

OhioPRO partners with peer organizations to create Peer eLicensing/Certification Technical Assistance Hubs.

Five peer organizations have partnered with OhioPRO and OhioMHAS to create technical assistance call centers for peers.  These centers will be staffed by certified peer recovery supporters who will be available to answer any questions regarding the new eLicensing platform.  They have received training so that they may provide information and answer any questions related to peer recovery supporter certification or recertification.
