New webinar added to Voices for Choices advocate toolbox


The “Voices for Choices” project is training psychiatric survivors, family members, and allies to advocate effectively for choices and alternatives in the mental health system

This Excellence-funded project honors everyone’s potential to be a leader, even those in the back wards of the most restricted psychiatric facilities. It connects people with lived experience of mental health challenges with peer mentors, equipping them to change the system of care in their communities. Sarah Smith at MindFreedom International is the project coordinator.

The first two in a series of recorded webinars are now available online featuring panelists David Oaks, Jim Gottstein, and Emily Cutler in the first and Adrian Bernard, Caroline Mazel-Carlton, and Hilary Melton in the second, presenting their findings from years of working with people in distress.
