CELT Tidewater 2018
November 2, 2018 @ 9:00 am - November 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Consumer Empowerment and Leadership Training (CELT), MHAV’s flagship educational program, is three days of workshops designed to give mental health consumers important tools for successful leadership and the skills to make your voice heard. This commuter-style training is designed for those that are further along in their recovery and are contemplating involvement in their communities or in the workforce. Many organizations, facilities and localities are seeking consumers to join their boards, committees, and work groups to improve mental health services and focus on high quality services. Community Service Boards and local Human Rights Committees are required by Virginia law to include consumers in their activities.
19 VCB-approved hours of continuing education credit will be awarded to Virginia Certified Peer Recovery Specialists.
Format: This commuter-style training takes place from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and include tuition, materials, and lunch. Participants are expected to arrange their own transportation to the program. Lodging is not provided as this is commuter-style.
Topics include: Conflict resolution, cultural competency, trauma awareness, history of the mental health consumer movement
