Navigating Mental Health: Learning from Peers will feature peer mentors who will share their lived experiences and careers in mental health. After speakers present, participants will break into small groups for a more in depth discussion. Additionally, Queensborough Community College will be in attendance with information about their Peer Advocate Certificate Program. The evening will showcase the power of peer mentoring and explore the role a peer mentor can play at local organizations. We will also be fielding requests at the event for peer mentors.
Community groups and service providers are encouraged to attend. Delicious refreshments will be provided.
This event is part of the Take Care Rockaway Initiative. This event is part of a strategy to grow awareness about resources and reduce stigma toward mental health. For updates on the Take Care Rockaway please sign up for our newsletter at email@example.com.
