CAPS Peer Support Program and CAPS CARES Initiative
CAPS members and their overall health is always a concern to the CAPS community. When things go right, the CAPS community is there to celebrate success and when things go sideways, the CAPS community is also there to help CAPS members get back on their feet through the CAPS Peer Support Program. This year our 2017 CAPS President, Suzanne Stevens, CSP and Frema Engel, CAPS Montreal have collaborated to launch a new initiative called CAPS Cares Advocates. CAPS CARES Advocates in Chapters across the country, will raise awareness about the Peer Support Program, how it works and how it can help our members. Also hear about the CAPS mental health /wellbeing community outreach initiative the CAPS CARES Advocates are working together to develop and how you can get involved.
In this webinar you take away awareness of:
- Why the focus on mental health and why now?
- The role of CAPS Cares Advocates and the relationship to CAPS Peer Support Program
- How CAPS members can support this initiative
