The Speakers’ Bureau, 2013


CHARG Resource Center has a consumer-run speakers’ bureau. It was created to educate the public about mental illness, to reduce the stigma and misunderstanding that surrounds it, and to empower individuals to take control of their symptoms & their lives. The Speakers’ Bureau is available for presentations at community venues such as churches and schools, and for training specific groups such as law enforcement professionals. All presentations are free of charge.

“I am not my illness. It plays a major role in my life but it does not define me. I can tell you about personal experiences surrounding my illness and how it has affected my life. I can tell you how I came to be who I am based on my interactions with others and my life events, and I can relate these experiences to my diagnosis. I can also tell you where to get started if you decide to seek treatment for yourself – or a family member needing support.”

Becoming a speaker:
Do you want to make a difference in someone’s life by speaking about mental illness?
Join the speakers bureau!
We are the voice of consumers at CHARG Resource Center.
Along with building confidence and practicing effective communication, we further CHARG’s goal of dispelling myths surrounding mental illness in the community. At periodic trainings, you will learn the basics of idea development, source quotation, speech composition, and getting the nervousness out! Whatever your background and skill level, you can turn your ideas and experience into a wealth of resource for all. Join us to shine a light on mental health!
