Why Advocacy and How the Heck Do You Do It?
Time: 2:00 PM EST
In today’s political climate, we can never take for granted that those drafting and enacting public policy understand the need for crisis intervention and mental health services locally, statewide, and nationally. In fact, crisis intervention services are often the most underrated, misunderstood, and forgotten of the social services. As experts in the field of crisis intervention, it is incumbent upon us to ensure that the services we provide and the clients who benefit from our services remain at the forefront of the discussion on mental health care, whether that’s with our local elected officials, state legislators, or our Congressmen and women in Washington, D.C.
