This PSP workshop will focus on self-advocacy skills for survivors of mental illness or the general population. It is presented in three units, which can be performed as three separate workshops involving three themes: ATTITUDE, SKILLS and KNOWLEDGE. A shorter version can also be adapted to present as one workshop, which would be done in a half-day session. The format, which will be developed in this workshop, will involve the shorter format focusing on attitudes, skills and knowledge related to self-advocacy. The material presented in this workshop can be adapted to problem solving personal advocacy issues and/or systemic, organizational and larger problems. This workshop will provide participants with many opportunities for group discussion about attitudes, skills and developing more knowledge about how to be an effective advocate, as well as becoming aware of their present strengths and weaknesses in this area of study.
