Okay, I’m hoping that EVERYONE will get involved in this and help out. We have had well over 100 people attend our monthly Learning Community Meetings throughout our six counties. The meetings have been very successful – they are for the community to get involved, get informed, and hopefully get active. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We’re developing our agendas for the coming year and want to make the meetings even more interesting; make learning fun. Because these are learning COMMUNITY meetings, it would be both fun and beneficial to have folks from the community give us their ideas on things they’d like to see happening with these meetings… What would inspire YOU?
The Concept Paper explains that NLCMHA Learning Community Meetings are an opportunity to :
- support current interest and promote new interest in mental health recovery;
- celebrate and share new recovery stories for current and new consumers;
- tie together various local initiatives which pertain to system transformation (such as Anti-Stigma, Peer Support Specialists, Co-Occurring Disorders treatment, Suicide Prevention);
- inspire one another; and
- build a recovery culture throughout the NLCMHA organization so that consumers and staff engaging in the system all expect and embrace Recovery across our six counties.
The concept paper says: Everyone associated with the Learning Communities would assist to nurture and support the work of the Learning Communities to help create enthusiasm and interest and promote and recruit people to become part of the LCs.
Take this opportunity as a challenge to bring your ideas forward to create a whole year’s worth of fun, rewarding, enjoyable meetings to help continue and grow our knowledge on recovery. Together we can continue to make a difference!
