Change Maker

Change Maker trains individuals how to participate in boards, commissions, and committees where lived experience is required/codified. These individuals will:

  • learn the behavioral healthcare delivery system in Virginia and the bodies that are responsible for monitoring and changing the system
  • discover why they are needed, how they fit into systemic change, and how to find and monitor parts of systemic change
  • learn about the different types of changemaking bodies, how to effectively participate, and how to find vacancies
  • create a plan and find individuals that can help them be successful in the changemaking role

Facilitators: Bonnie Neighbour and Jennifer Spangler
