Making the Connection: Engaging with Consumers, Families and Advocates

Partnering with advocacy groups that represent people living with mental illness and their families can broaden the impact of a program, help ensure long-term sustainability and provide surprising resources and support. This workshop will address the benefits of working with these organizations and address the challenges that programs often face in making the connection.  Speakers will provide practical strategies for reaching out and participants will have a chance to discuss the challenges they face at the local level.
