Sisters Mentally Mobilized- Sacramento
Sisters Mentally Mobilized- Advocate Training
The Advocate Training Program (ATP) is the introductory experience of Sisters Mentally Mobilized. Over the course of approximately 6-8 weeks, participating sisters will gain a deeper understanding of the forces that contribute to mental health stigma, anxiety and isolation in Black women; share and learn coping and support strategies; identify community priorities for mental health advocacy and organizing; and craft solutions for promoting individual and community well-being. The SMM-ATP prepares Black women to establish and lead mental-health focused sister circles in their communities.
The Sacramento cohort of Sisters Mentally Mobilized will begin with a two-day orientation. The ATP sessions will begin the following week, and will consist of one session per week (dates to be announced). Participating sisters will also complete a group project by the end of the ATP, which will be showcased at graduation attended by friends, family, and community leaders!
