The Silos Within: Bridging our Network to Create Deep Connections, Leadership, and Stronger Allies
The 2018 Massachusetts Leadership Academy (MLA) explores how to bridge the gaps between the mental health community and the physical disability community. People who identify with both of these groups and are interested in advocacy are encouraged to apply.
The MLA is a 3-day retreat where we gather to develop our personal leadership skills, learn about the mental health recovery movement, and learn how to advocate for change through the power of peer support. By bringing people together across a spectrum of abilities and struggles, we hope to weave a strong web of resource and allies to improve our lives.
