Our Annual Peer Leadership Conference was held in Bloomington Illinois on August 9th and 10th . We celebrated many familiar and new peer connections from across the state. Homelessness Chief, Christine Haley, was our plenary speaker and SHPA staff provided updates on SOAR and Advocacy. Other sessions by SHPA staff included Landlord/Tenant Rights and Responsibilities and a great presentation about “Labels”. A panel of Peers who participated in our recent Peer Leadership Development Workshop updated us all about the value and benefits from workshop participation. Another panel of Peers spoke to the impacts that Peer leadership has made throughout the state this past year. One Peer hosted a session about making small yet positive health changes. We all shared a fun evening with a group activity.
