The BHRS Lived Experience Academy is a 10-hour training program
that facilitates the development of consumers and family members
as empowered leaders in San Mateo County who can represent the
voices and interests of all BHRS clients, serve as recovery
ambassadors and role models, and help reduce stigma.
Participants learn how to share their personal stories through
inspirational, insightful and authentic testimonies, and
demonstrate that with the right treatment, services and supports,
many can and do recover.
