The monthly F.E.E.L. meeting this month will be talking about the importance of peer support with Chris Hansen.
Chris is the Director of the organisation Intentional Peer Support, which was developed in the 1990s and is based in New Hampshire, USA.
A former member of the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry (WNUSP), Chris was also involved with the New Zealand delegation to the drafting of the UNCRPD – the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities that was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 13, 2006, and entered into force on May 3, 2008.
The meeting is FREE although donations are welcome and are open to anyone.
