Peerpocalypse Started Monday, 7/20/2020 until Thursday, 7/23/2020

The main international conference this year for mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors will be entirely on Zoom, and it is now all free (unless you want continuing education credits.)
There are so many dozens of wonderful workshops and keynotes, along with a virtual display. There will be participants from all over the world.
Unfortunately, unless you paid and registered (which is now closed), the only way to get links for the workshops is through the workshop presenter themself. Again, now everything is free on Zoom.
I gave this with Christina Peirsol:
Winning Human Rights in Mental Health: Campaign Action Team Support!

I am also one of the five keynoters. Because of my communication challenges, my keynote will be a little longer than others, 30 minutes.
Here’s how to listen live directly:

Here is the description of the whole event from organizers:
PEERPOCALYPSE is a conference of leaders, emerging leaders, innovators, and peers who want to become more involved in the peer community. Adopting the philosophy that peers bring with them a great deal of knowledge and expertise, the event is about bringing the community together to share information, skills, and experience.

If you missed any of the workshop or keynotes, most of this should be recorded and available. Check it out!
Thanks to all the folks who worked so hard to support the empowerment of our people’s voice for all these years with this important annual event, organized out of an office in Portland, Oregon. Aciu!
