When you have been designated as a Peer Supporter and/or Facilitator under an Organization, you will need to set up your profile under that Organization. To do so log into your HeyPeers account. You will be brought to your "Destination Page." On that page, you can access your organization by clicking ORGANIZATIONS at the top-right menu or the ORGANIZATION tile in the middle of your screen. You will be brought to a new screen. Click on the MY ORGANIZATIONS button located at the top middle of the page. This will display the Organizations you have been designated to be a Peer Supporter and/or Facilitator for.
Find the Organization you need to set up your profile on and click on the PROFILE button located at the bottom left corner of the Organization tile. A popup window will appear. Please do the following to update your profile.
Upload a Profile Picture - Your profile picture gives the first visual impression to HeyPeers users, we recommend that your profile picture is an image where your face is clearly visible, inviting and shows a bit of your personality!
Be mindful of the background of your image so that it’s not distracting or inappropriate. We recommend the size of your image is 200 px X 200 px no greater than 2 MB.
Fill Out the Prompts - There are a few text boxes where you are asked to share the following:
- Short greetings for your peers
- Motivation for help
- Your recovery status
If you are unsure what to write in the prompt boxes, hover over the “?” icon and you will see some examples.
Be sure to designate your qualifications, Age range I am comfortable providing support, Availability to host group meetings for this organization, Available to provide support and receive connections from peers.
If you turn on Hide my profile toggle that means you are hiding your public profile and users will not be able to read up about you. We do not recommend hiding your profile if you are actively scheduling group meetings, chat rooms and coaching sessions. It IS helpful to Hide my profile when you want to take your time to complete your profile.
Under Concentrations, check the boxes of lived experiences that apply to you.
When you have completed your Organizational profile click the UPDATE button.
