    Join  KMHC  as a District Advocate 

    The Kansas Mental Health Coalition (KMHC) is recruiting and training mental health and disability advocates from among consumers, family members, service providers and other interested persons to build a statewide network of District Advocates to influence public policy through their state and local elected officials. There is no registration cost. 

    During registration, you will be asked to provide the district numbers of your state representative and state senator and U.S. congressional district.  

    You can find these at https://myvoteinfo.voteks.org/VoterView/RegistrantSearch.do.  You will also be asked to agree to a commitment to perform the role of Grassroots Advocate.  The free training event will prepare you for this role but is optional.

    If you have not already done so, please review the Program Description and District Advocate Position Description.

    What is Advocacy Training?

    This practical training is designed to teach participants how to tell their story and experience with mental health in Kansas.  The outcome of this learning experience is that attendees will know how to schedule and have a sit-down, in-person meeting with a state legislator, a county commissioner, a municipal decision-maker or a community leader.   Our intention is to influence change to improve mental health not just for people and families experiencing mental health challenges, but all people living in Kansas.  

    Time:              8:30 am – 4:30 pm

    Location:        The Forum Room at the Topeka Tower, Third Floor
