About the Session:
Accessible buildings are everywhere due to government laws and initiatives while truly accessible mental health services lag far behind. Utilizing the dynamic World Café approach, we‘ll examine the core issues and search out solutions to create truly accessible supports and services. The World Café is a powerful community engagement model. Experience it action and learn how to use it in your community to develop innovative ways to create truly accessible mental health supports and services.
