Event description

Description

Our featured speakers, Lee Shuer and Bec Belofsky Shuer, have lived experience with mental health challenges. They are internationally known educators and advocates working to bust stigma and inspire hope for recovery. Learn more about their journey at www.mutual-support.com

Intended audience: Adults, high schooolers, peers, family members, caring community members, health and human services providers (including Certified Peer Specialists and licensed clinicians,) and social work/social service students.

Please join NAMI Waukesha in hosting this unique and interactive workshop open to ANYONE!

This presentation is an interactive discussion that addresses the learning objectives below. The presenters will facilitate a conversation based on the modules found in the Mutual Support Workbook, written by Lee Shuer.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the difference between peer support and mutual support to maximize one’s potential to provide one or both of them.

  • Evaluate and utilize strengths-based language while reducing stigmatizing language to increase access to substance use/mental health care and hope for recovery.

  • Identify and integrate relevant parts of one’s personal history to empathize with and be more supportive to others.

  • Determine whether their interactions with people in recovery foster empowerment or accommodate “learned helplessness.”

  • Assess treatment and support options available to people living with substance abuse/mental health challenges to empower informed decision making.


If you have been struggling with how to really help someone, or yourself, this is for you!

*This will take place in the Community Room of St. Mary Parish. Walk into the large glass doors in the middle of the parking lot.
