    Promoting Economic Empowerment & Recovery through Peer Support

    in Health

    Oscar Jimenez-Solomon, MPH, Research Scientist & Research Coordinator, NYS Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence, NYS Psychiatric Institute


    Peggy Swarbrick, PhD, FAOTA, Wellness Institute Director, Collaborative Support Programs of NJ, Associate Professor, Rutgers University


    Poverty and dependency are barriers to the recovery and rehabilitation of people seeking mental health recovery. Clinicians, peer providers, consumers, families, and community services must work together to help individuals achieve financial stability and wellness.


    This talk presents lessons of the Collaborative Support Programs of NJ (CSP-NJ) in providing financial services for people in mental health recovery and examples of asset-building services available in many communities. It also describes key components of a peer-facilitated economic empowerment intervention being developed by the NYSPI Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence in partnership with the Wellness Institute at CSP-NJ, the Mental Health Peer Connection (Buffalo, NY), Baltic Street (Brooklyn, NY) and other organizations providing peer and asset-building services, such as the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS), the United Way of Buffalo and Western NY, and the National Disability Institute.


    For more information about the Peer Supported Economic Empowerment (PSEE) project, please contact Oscar Jimenez-Solomon at: jsolomo@nyspi.columbia.edu.


     For more information about CSP-NJ's financial services and Word Wellness Newsletter, please contact Peggy Swarbrick at: pswarbrick@cspnj.org

    The Ferguson Uprising: Can Economic Empowerment Of African Americans End Racial Injustice?

    in Women

    The name Black Wallstreet conjures up images of an economicaly thriving African American community attacked and burned to the ground by jealous whites. Today's efforts to resurrect an economically thriving African American community in the wake of the recent riots in Missouri prompt the question "How Ca Econoic Empowerment of African Americans End Racial Injustice?" The disrespect of African Americans has been at the root of American politics, economics and culture, the result of the wounds of slavery that remain unhealed. Can financial affluence alone reverse attitudes of disrespect for black life? Are neighborhoods more likely to get respect from law enforcement officers if the residents are also the business owners in the community? How can a stronger economy in formerly economically depressed communities result in more tangible political gaines? What collective action will it take to circulate money into areas that are currently suffering the consequences of longtime neglect. Chicago activist Mark Allen discusses the plans for Black Wallstreet and how economic development can diffuse racial tensions end the gang violence that is often used as an excuse for excessive police force against African American youth.
