Sponsors Needed

We invite you to help people empower themselves to lead fulfilling lives and make a difference in their communities and in the world!

On behalf of the Alternatives 2019 Conference Planning Committee, we are writing to ask for your support of Alternatives 2019, the 33rd annual national conference for mental health recovery. Alternatives 2019 is sponsored by the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR).

GET INVOLVED

This exciting event will bring together approximately 600 grassroots stakeholders, representing diverse populations. There will be five days of inspiring keynotes, stimulating workshops, interactive caucuses, and other events focused on leadership development, innovation, inclusion, peer support, recovery, creativity, healing, spirituality, and wellness. Alternatives 2019 will offer in-depth technical assistance on peer-delivered services and self-help/recovery methods, and provide participants with an extraordinary opportunity to join with peer leaders from across the U.S. to share inside information on the “how-to’s” of creating, implementing, and sustaining cutting-edge programs; evaluation methodology; and effective organizing techniques.

 

GAIN VISIBILITY

Now is your chance to showcase your organization’s commitment to the first national conference created by and for individuals with lived experience of mental health conditions or substance use issues who sought traditional services or alternatives such as peer-run services. It has been a beacon of hope for thousands of people living with mental health challenges—motivating, inspiring and equipping them to live their best lives.

 

BUILD AWARENESS

By helping sponsor Alternatives 2019, you will allow hundreds of individuals with lived experience across the country the opportunity to attend this life-changing event. Your sponsorship package will provide needed resources to make Alternatives 2019 a success. It will also give you a chance to showcase your organization’s commitment to mental health! We consider your sponsorship a partnership supporting the empowerment of individuals with lived experience, and building and sustaining recovery pathways across our nation.

Please let us know by Friday, May 17, 2019, which category will best suit your organization’s capacity and desired level of support. Contact any of the individuals below with your sponsorship choice!

Please make checks payable to NCMHR and send them to NCMHR, 25 Bigelow St., Cambridge, MA 02139, or donate via the NCMHR website www.ncmhr.org.

The mission of the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery is to ensure that individuals with lived experience of the mental health system have a major voice in the development and implementation of health care, mental health, and social policies at the state and national levels, empowering people to recover and lead a full life in the community. NCMHR comprises 27 statewide and many local peer-run organizations as well as individual members across the nation. These groups represent thousands of individuals with lived experience. Through its membership on the Steering Committee of the National Disability Leadership Alliance, NCMHR is one of 17 national disability groups that collaborate in the development of cross-disability policies.
