Lydia is on staff with VOCAL, a Virginia statewide non-profit run by and for individuals with lived experience of mental health concerns, to support each other toward recovery and wellness. Her specific role is to travel the Commonwealth to offer “peer support for organizational wellness,” by offering trainings and assistance in the gritty details of running a non-profit.
No surprise, Lydia says the two major questions that she encounters pull directly from training in the IHC Masters Program: 1) How do we evaluate impact/outcomes and 2) How do we reach more people with our message?
