The CPIEM is a guide book created by peers, for peers, to help them develop the skills they need to turn their lived mental health experience into meaningful change in the mental health system of care.

The CPIEM is designed to

  • help people in recovery use their voice to help others walking the same path;
  • enable them to better understand themselves and their recovery; and
  • use that understanding to foster systems change and the growth of person‐centered, strengths‐based, recovery-focused approaches to the mental health system in their states and communities.

There are five modules in the series that lay out a path through understanding ones own strengths and abilities, identifying ways to engage in the public conversation about mental health, preparing and engaging, and reviewing your growth to figure out what you have learned and how you can apply it going forward.

Throughout your journey, our two CPIEM guides, Mike the Microphone and Meg the Megaphone share some tips and provide encouragement to help you on our path to advocacy.

Join us to hear about how the CPIEM was created, how peers have used it to find a path to sharing their lived experience in meaningful ways, and get to know our friends Mike and Meg along the way!
