Peer Networking

Peer Networking is an opportunity to share specialized, technical knowledge with others in the legal profession, while simultaneously providing mentoring and peer support. 

 

“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” - John Crosby

JCMH's technical assistance includes Peer Mentoring, enabling judges and attorneys to connect and learn from each other’s experiences. This type of mentoring is a relationship between peers who are in the same or similar role, but one person has more experience than the other in a particular area and can provide support as well as knowledge and skills transfer. 

Mentors will have knowledge, skill, or experience in a specialized area of implementing policies and procedures within the justice system that improve the lives of individuals with mental health needs, substance abuse disorders, or intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Mentees are engaged and committed to gaining the ability to implement such changes in their own role and county.
