Have you ever thought of yourself as an advocate? Do you want to learn the basics of advocacy for mental health policies and practices?
Grassroots advocacy is simple; you don’t have to know about policies or politics. It’s about using your voice to influence policy makers and making a difference.
Make your voice heard. NAMI Smarts for Advocacy will enhance your advocacy skills and help you shape a powerful and personal story that will move policy
Whether you are new to advocacy or have years of experience you will leave the training with messages,step-by-step tools and the practice you need to feel informed, confident and ready to make a difference.
You will learn advocacy from the first of three modules called Telling Your Story. (Save the date for the full 3-session Smarts Training which will occur the day before the NAMI Michigan Conference, May 13).
Dinner and refreshment will be provided. RSVP 517-484-3404 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your work as an advocate for mental health. We forward to seeing you May 5.
