MH Mediate hosts a number of dialogue events. Our first major event was part of the White House National Dialogue on Mental Health. It was one of the first events in the country, the first in New York City, and the first to include participants from a variety of stakeholder perspectives. Afterwards, we led a webinar teaching other organizers how to follow our example in holding an inclusive, diverse event. See the summary of that dialogue and others below.
JULY 2013 NATIONAL DIALOGUE ON MENTAL HEALTH
A White House Initiative
FEBRUARY 2015 MENTAL HEALTH DIALOGUES
On February 27, 2015 MH Mediate and the CUNY Dispute Resolution Center facilitated new conversations about mental health.
“Informative; helpful, lively discussion. Well organized. Very open.”
“Discussion groups comprised of people with varying professional backgrounds. What a wonderful mix!! Very informative.”
“The facilitators were great and we had a diverse group with great experiences and ideas. It was wonderful to be able to discuss what needs to be done to help end discrimination and stigma, to help make people with mental illness feel more a part of this country.”
“I liked the break-out discussion style for brainstorming issues and suggestions for change. I think this was an effective format for facilitating discussion. I am really grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in such an important effort.”
