Lived Experience Academy Starts October 3

Former LEA graduates and facilitators

Do you or someone you know have an empowering story to share?

The Lived Experience Academy, starting again next month, trains individuals who have experienced mental health and/or substance abuse challenges to share personal stories that make a difference, help reduce stigma, improve the BHRS services and develop leadership skills. 

Individuals in the program learn how to present stories of recovery in a way that inspires others and helps improve the County’s behavioral health services and the lives of San Mateo County clients and family members.

Apply by September 16, 2019.
