When Activism Movements Collide: Mental Health Activism and Bridging the Gap

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Mental health activism is in crisis. Professionals and family members of consumers often approach problems in the system paternalistically, ignoring consumers' needs. Consumer-led movements sometimes distance themselves from those who have the most complex needs. People of color are often excluded completely. Join in a presentation and discussion on ways to bridge the gap and create a cohesive movement where all voices are heard and synthesized through narrative-building and more.
