This was DBSA’s first year partnering with the National Council for Behavioral Health and we certainly made our presence known. Our goal was to make sure the Peer voice was heard. And heard it was! We received recognition at the closing reception as the state and/or organization with the most peers in attendance. And we were listed among the top ten tweeters for the event.
Give yourself a big pat on the back, soak your tired feet, but don’t rest on your laurels, because this is just the beginning. Look for e-mails from me in the very near future outlining how you can grow your advocacy efforts on the local, state and national level.
I am honored and proud to be part of such a dedicated and enthusiastic group of people. Let’s keep the momentum going.
