Who Should Attend:
This is a hands-on, grassroots organizing conference for people who have experienced problems resulting from drug and alcohol abuse; young adults and families experiencing social, emotional or behavioral challenges; people who have been psychiatrically labelled; and psychiatric survivors, consumers, and ex-patients.
Join us for a daylong conference combining panel presentations and hands-on, breakout discussion groups as we endeavor to increase communication among our networks, break down stereotypes, and learn to trust one another. Our goal is to craft a preliminary strategy for collective advocacy in Vermont.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to be part of building a powerful coalition for advocating for our self-determined needs.
