Show Notes

Historically, the mental health system, and the conversation surrounding it, has given more value to the expert opinions of providers and clinicians than the experiences of those living with mental health conditions. Today, elevating the visibility of mental health consumers is now commonplace for mental health organizations, institutions, and leaders who recognize the many advantages of giving mental health consumers more autonomy and authority in the mental health space. But what else needs to happen before we’re able to truly say that mental health consumers have truly arrived? Helping us answer this is Noah Abdenour, Director of Peer and Recovery Services Programs, Planning and Policy for Texas HHS, and Anna Gray, director of Prosumers, a peer-run organization.
