“Hearing Voices Training Webinar”

A webinar by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will take place Friday, October 10, 2014 at 2:00pm Eastern Time called “Hearing Voices Training Webinar”.

Goals of the Hearing Voices Network USA Include:

  • Raising awareness about voice hearing, visions and other unusual or extreme experiences
  • Supporting anyone who has had these experiences by providing opportunities to talk about them freely and without judgment
  • Supporting anyone who has had these experiences to explore, understand, learn and grow from them in their own way
  • Supporting individuals providing support, family, friends and the general community to broaden their understanding and ability to support individuals who have had these experiences

 

Presenters: Oryx Cohen, M.P.A., Director of the National Empowerment Center’s (NEC’s) Technical Assistance Center and Marty Hadge, a trainer for The Hearing Voices Network USA and Peer Facilitator for the Western Mass Recovery Learning Community.

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.
