Lived Experience Advocacy Diversity (LEAD) Regional Summit – Los Angeles

Hosted by Painted Brain in partnership with CAMHPRO


Location: The California Endowment

Time: 10:00am – 4:00pm

Painted Brain is excited to announce that we are hosting the LEAD Regional Summit– Los Angeles on May 8th, 2023 at The California Endowment. This one day conference has been organized for peers in Los Angeles County to come together and discuss advocacy, mental health and recovery. In preparation for this event, Painted Brain has been conducting a series of listening sessions for peers in the African American/Black community, Asian and Pacific Islander community, Disabled community, Older Adult community and Latinx community to understand what gaps exist in our access to recovery care. The culminating listening session “The Listening Gallery” will be an immersive listening experience streaming peer-to-peer interviews that will be recorded during the summit with peer artwork as the visual focal point. This event will also offer speakers on policy and advocacy as well as workshops and interactive art activities. Please join us at this summit event in a space that will empower peers and give them the tools and knowledge to continue on their journeys to advocacy.
