In Our Own Words: A Toolkit for Peer Advocacy using Recovery-Based Language
Collaborating TTC: Southeast MHTTC
August 6, 2020
The Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network presented a two-part webinar on Elevating Language, both hosted by the Southeast MHTTC. The first webinar focused on the importance of recovery-oriented language in behavioral health, and the second webinar guided peers through the process of crafting a elevator message to be used in advocacy work.
The purpose of this toolkit is to increase awareness of the language used when talking about mental health and to guide peers through the process of crafting their own elevator message. The second part of the toolkit includes steps to follow when developing an elevator message as well as a worksheet to facilitate the process.
