The Power of Peers: How to Advocate Effectively on the Individual and Systems Level

With advocacy skills, individuals with lived experience of mental health conditions can protect their own and others’ rights, combat discrimination and prejudice, and become catalysts for systems change. This presentation, by a longtime national leader of the consumer/survivor/ex-patient (c/s/x) movement for social justice, will cover self-advocacy and systems advocacy skills.
