The Education Coordinator (EC) strives to increase the quality of life for consumer/survivors. The EC holds regular workshops, presentations and a monthly education committee meeting to bring community awareness addressing the stigma, myths, prejudices and misconceptions associated with Mental Illness. The EC continually researches information on mental health, illness and addictions. The EC focuses on the positive experiences of being a consumer/survivor in our communities.
This is achieved through the following:
- Education/Information for both members and the public
- Internal/External Committees
- Focus groups
- Quarterly newsletter
- Opportunities to attend conferences
The Education Coordinator is always happy to answer any questions and give presentations at any time.
