A community mental health advocacy workshop is a hands-on training program designed to empower individuals living with mental illness, their friends, and family members. These workshops aim to transform passion and lived experiences into skillful grassroots advocacy.
Here are some key components typically covered in this workshop:
Telling a Compelling Story: Participants learn how to share their personal experiences in a concise and impactful manner. The goal is to create a compelling narrative that inspires action and prompts policymakers to listen.
Effective Communication Skills:
Writing Effective Emails: Participants gain insights into crafting persuasive emails to advocate for mental health-related issues.
Elevator Speech: Learning to deliver a concise and powerful message in just 90 seconds.
Impactful Phone Calls: Techniques for making phone calls that leave a lasting impression.
Meeting with Elected Officials:
Participants learn how to orchestrate successful meetings with elected representatives.
Strategies for effectively conveying their stories and advocating for mental health policies. Participants, whether new to advocacy or experienced, find value in condensing their stories and making clear “asks” that resonate with policymakers.
Remember, mental health advocacy is a collective effort, and workshops like these play a crucial role in promoting awareness, understanding, and positive change.
