Ensure your clients have reliable access to one of the most effective, evidence-based forms of healing by gifting yourself a Professional Peer Group. The collective skills and experience levels of these integrated counseling experts will buoy and embolden you.

Choose from four working-group focuses – all moderated by Solihten Institute Staff with unique opportunities to present case management studies, consult specific cases, share fundraising and development approaches, and explore commonalities of nonprofit mental health providers.

Professional Peer Group Options


Executive Directors

There are four cohorts of Executive Directors who meet regularly for intensive peer support and consultation. One of these groups is a dedicated electronic option, while the other three meet twice in person each and supplement with monthly electronic meetings.

Development Personnel

The opportunities and challenges pertaining to development fundraising and marketing are significant dimensions of operating a Solihten affiliated Center. Two different meeting times are offered each month so those doing this work can share ideas, obtain feedback, and connect with others in this role.

Vālant Users’ Group

Because Vālent EHR is the most widely used Electronic Record system in the Network, a users’ group convenes eight times per year to discuss specifics of the program.

School-based Services

Two distinct cohorts meet to discuss the opportunities and challenges unique to providing school-based services.

1) Centers with a current school-based program in place.
2) Centers working toward developing or cultivating school-based services.
