Our Peer Tech Training program uses a Train-the-Trainer model covering basic Digital Health Literacy, and Social Media Marketing. The skills taught in our classes supports peers in harnessing technology to improve job readiness, sustainability, and overall wellness. All of our curriculums reflect the 8 dimensions to wellness domains from SAMHSA to ensure a whole-person care approach.


The ability to access and use the Internet, computers, and related technology has become essential in today’s world. Technology is transforming the most important areas of our lives, from employment to education to health.

The LA County Department of Mental Health in collaboration with Painted Brain created a Digital Health Literacy Curriculum, a peer-led course that increases digital health literacy among mental health consumers and peers as well as college-aged young adults. Digital health literacy highlights how we can use technology such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, iPads and other devices to capture elements of our lived experiences (e.g. behavior, symptoms, mood), define health-related goal-setting, encourage self-management strategies, and provide support in managing day-to-day tasks.

Overall, enhanced digital health literacy can serve as a tool to improve the mental wellness of individuals within our target population.
