Intentional Peer Support Responds to AOT/ Forced Psychiatry! Chris Hansen, Director of Intentional Peer Support, describes a principled, relational alternative to forced psychiatric interventions like AOT (Assisted Outpatient Treatment). Chris has been promoting, developing and training peers worldwide in Intentional Peer Support for a decade. She has assisted the development of numerous peer-run crisis respites in a number of countries. Before her work in Intentional Peer Support, Chris served as an advisor to New Zealand mental health services and on the board for the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry. She was a member of the New Zealand delegation to the United Nations to develop the Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In this episode, Chris describes what Intentional Peer Support is and how it came to be developed as an alternative to force and coercion in mental health. She shares her experience (both lived and work-related) of how and why forced treatments (like AOT) are damaging. Shel explains why many people believe that alternatives need to be happening, what some of these alternatives are, and how they might come to be more broadly available to people who want them.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Peer support for people with similar life experiences has proven to be tremendously important towards helping many move through difficult situations. These similar life experiences may include people who have lost children, people with alcohol and substance abuse problems, and etc. In general, the value of peer support has been substantiated by the fact that people who have like experiences can better relate and can consequently offer more authentic empathy and validation. A Peer Support Group is a voluntary gathering of people with similar challenges to share experiences, reveal coping strategies and offer understanding. Tonight we will take a closer look at the peer support group concept through the eyes a newly formed organization whose mission is to embrace, educate and empower families and communities impacted by substance use disorder. Can a Peer Support Group be what you have been looking for?
In this talk, you will hear Emily Grossman, MA, CPRP Recovery Specialist and Trainer, OnTrackNY, share a first-hand account of her experience living with and recovering from Bipolar Disorder, as well as how she used this experience to help others, first as a Peer Provider in a Community Mental Health Center, and currently as a trainer of mental health professionals. Emily will explore the definition and role of peer providers as well as her experience working in this exciting field. Finally, she will talk about how the Center for Practice Innovations is using Peer Providers to advance their work. The talk will be moderated by Dacia Morris, MSW, New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia Psychiatry Research Recruitment Liaison. Please join us for this informative discussion.
The Center for Practice Innovations (CPI) supports the New York State Office of Mental Health's mission to promote the widespread availability of evidence-based practices to improve mental health services, ensure accountability, and promote recovery-oriented outcomes for consumers and families. The CPI serves as a key resource to OMH by spreading those practices identified by OMH as most critical to accomplish OMH's system-transformation initiatives.

Heather is an expert in the field of trauma intervention and the effects trauma can have on your daily life. She works with law enforcement officers on a daily basis to help them with the emotional difficulties of the job. Please also listen to part 2 to wrap up our discussion we had some technical difficulties.
Do you have a problem with family court? Do you have a problem with the judges being partial in judgement when it comes to a child support case? Do you know that there are men and women who are killing their children because they have no way out; no jobs, and out of frustrations decent parents are giving up; because there is nowhere to go to get help. No programs to cushion the fall. Are our system a set up for failure program? Laws that infringe on the rights to have a way out when times are rough; no compassion but more pressure to pay or lay in jail; and have a label of a failure because of a crime of not being able to pay child support. Is our Court system and laws unfair and lumps all decent parent with deadbeat parent? Don't you think it is time do something about it, folks?
Join me and Alpha C Hales on a journey to unlock a way to relieve the stress of being a decent disadvantaged non-custodial parent obligor in the hustle and bustle of paying child support.
