Peer Speaking Engagements

The team at RAMS Division of Peer-Based Services has been invited to present at two mental health conferences. 

The RAMS Division of Peer-Based Services have been invited to speak at the Mindset College Conference, a virtual event organized through a collaborative effort from four NGOs based in Hong Kong: Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service, Caritas Hong Kong, The Mental Health Association of Hong Kong and New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association. The conference “aims to provide recovery-focused trainings and courses on mental health for people-in-recovery, caregivers, mental health practitioners and anyone who is concerned about mental health.” This year, the theme of the conference is Recovery, Coproduction, and Peer Development. The conference will take place via Zoom on April 2023. More details will be available early next year. 

One of our esteemed Peer Supervisors, Vania Mendoza has been invited to join a in-person panel presentation at the NARPA conference (National Association for Rights, Protection, and Advocacy). NARPA’S mission is to support people with psychiatric diagnoses to exercise their legal and human rights, with the goals of abolishing forced treatment and ensuring autonomy, dignity and choice. The conference will take place in Newark, New Jersey from October 26-29. Additional information about NARPA can be found on http://narpa.org/

We’re proud to have peer staff with such high levels of expertise sought after at both the national and international level.
