NCMHR would like your input on priorities for 2020
Dear NCMHR members and friends, below you will find last year’s National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery priorities for policy transformation. I am happy to see protection of civil and human rights was number one. We are seeking your participation (suggestions from outside the US also welcome) in updating these priorities for the coming year. Feel free to share them with your networks.
We need to present our updated policies to our NCMHR Annual meeting to be held online July 20, 7:30-9 PM Eastern US Time , so please comment by July 13th:
Mission of NCMHR:
The overarching priority of the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery has been advocating for a recovery-focused mental health system that prevents crisis, protects rights, and promotes wellness, economic empowerment, and social inclusion.
Goal 1: Advocate for the civil and human rights of persons with mental health challenges and trauma histories.
Goal 2: Increase the availability and accessibility of voluntary supports to prevent crisis and promote recovery and social inclusion.
Goal 3: Improve conditions and opportunities for people working in peer roles.
Goal 4: Sponsor Alternatives Conferences
