Advanced Systems Advocacy Project
We are piloting an Advanced Systems Advocacy Project.
It will provide an opportunity for members of the mental health community and graduates of our Systems Advocacy Course to apply knowledge and strengthen their skills through participatory action research (PAR).
PAR is an approach to research that includes those most affected by systems to be part of every step of the research project from deciding on research questions and data collection methods to collecting, analyzing, and reporting on data. These research projects typically challenge what is known about systems or identify gaps in systems, while also advocating for a different perspective on how to change the way things work. Participants chose housing as the topic. We look forward to sharing the results of their project soon.
