Clearinghouse Webinar: Everybody at the Table

A 90-minute webinar on systems advocacy, entitled “Everybody at the Table: Changing the System One Step at a Time,” will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. ET. The webinar, sponsored by the National Mental Health Consumers’ Self-Help Clearinghouse, will provide an opportunity to learn about and discuss systems advocacy best practices, including what kinds of advocacy non-profits may engage in; how to identify key legislators at the city, state, and national levels; how to create relationships with policymakers, administrators, and their staffs; how to develop policy positions; how to create a grassroots action committee; and how to work in coalition with other groups. The presentation will use current advocacy campaigns as illustrations. The presenters are Elisha Coffey, MSW, program manager of the Involved Consumer Action Network (I CAN) at the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania (MHASP); and Adam Nester, MS, MHASP’s advocate for mental health systems and policy. Christa Burkett, Clearinghouse technical assistance coordinator, will moderate.

Webinar Series on Trauma Informed Peer Support

Download the Event Flyer Below!

SAMHSA’s National Center for Trauma-Informed Care (NCTIC) will host a series of three 75-minute webinars in September 2014 that will introduce key concepts in NCTIC’s day-long Trauma-Informed Peer Support (TIPS) training.  The primary audience is people who provide peer support - including people working as peer specialists or in similar roles, people involved in independent peer support groups, and people working in or receiving services from peer-run programs. The series would also be of interest to administrators, clinicians, and supervisors in organizations that employ peer specialists and people in similar roles, or those interested in incorporating trauma-informed peer support into their programs.   Each session will include 60 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes for discussion and questions.

We encourage participation in all three events – they will be archived for anyone who is not able to attend a session or misses the series.

The webinars will be held from 1:00 -2:15 pm Eastern time on three consecutive Tuesdays in September (9, 16 and 23). The weblink and audio conference call-in information are the same for each session.
