On Our Own: Becoming a Personal Advocate
March 30, 8 p.m., New Cabell 489
The role of a personal advocate is to provide assistance, encouragement, and support to an assigned member. Personal Advocates meet weekly to receive training, support each other, get advice from peers and staff, and learn about many resources around the area to assist members. The event will be facilitated by Erin Tucker, Executive Director of On Our Own, a local nonprofit organized to support community members with mental illness. She will discuss opportunities to become a Personal Advocate.
