The CAFÉ TA Center recently hosted a free webinar on the power and possibilities of peer support for previously incarcerated people on Wednesday, May 24th at 3:00 EDT.
The collateral consequences of incarceration are well documented. From limited housing, ineligibility to hold certain professional licenses, and employment discrimination, people that have been incarcerated experience impacts that reach way beyond their sentence and release. Yet, these same people possess an expertise and impact that cannot be replicated by people without it.
Join us as we learn from four amazing leaders who are changing lives, attitudes, and systems around the country by advancing forensic peer support to become the expectation, not the exception.
This webinar is the second in a yearlong series of monthly conversations about innovative peer-centered, recovery-focused practices in mental health facilitated by national peer leader, CEO of Promise Resource Network, and 2022 Bazelon Center Innovator of the Year Cherene Caraco.
Throughout the series, Cherene and CAFE TAC will introduce attendees to leaders with lived experience who have launched alternative ways to advance recovery, voice, and healing in their communities. Join us as we learn about innovative approaches, concepts, models and programs throughout the US and become inspired to perhaps launch your own!
