What is Advocacy Training?

This practical training is designed to teach participants how to tell their story and experience with mental health in Kansas.  The outcome of this learning experience is that attendees will know how to schedule and have a sit-down, in-person meeting with a state legislator, a county commissioner, a municipal decision-maker or a community leader.   Our intention is to influence change to improve mental health not just for people and families experiencing mental health challenges, but all people living in Kansas.  

Time:              8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Location:        The Forum Room at the Topeka Tower, Third Floor

Parking:         Just north of the Topeka Tower is a parking garage.  Be sure to bring your parking ticket with you in to training to be validated at no charge to training attendees.
