Funding Our Movement: Fundraising for Peer-Run Mental Health Programs
Ellen Osborne, Heather Peck
Many peer-run program leaders are beginning to think about diversifying our funding base. This institute will cover how to “make the case” for why your organization deserves funding by creating a compelling case statement for your fundraising and marketing materials. This institute will also cover how to “make the ask” of potential donors in our communities. In addition, we will cover the nuts, bolts, and tools to make a fundraising program successful and fun.

Psychiatric Advance Directives and WRAP Crisis Plans
Bonnie Neighbour, Ann Bohr Benner
Explore the process of getting Psychiatric Advance Directive language into state law and our role as peers in making that change happen, how a WRAP Crisis Plan can inform a Psychiatric Advance Directive and why both documents are important. Discuss mental health crisis and how we can be prepared, so that treatment given during a crisis is in line with our values and desires; and how we can, as citizens, make a difference in our own states’ laws.
