Hello Intenational Peer Respite/Soteria Summit Participant,
This is to let you know of some news and developments.
Mentoring.  One of the main  goals of our follow-up activities is to provide assistance to people who want to start Peer Respites or Soteria Houses.  Or if they are already are operating a Peer Respite or Soteria House and have questions about a problem(s) they are having.  We are using the term mentoring for this and requests for assistance can be made through our Mentoring Request Form.
Crisply Edited Video?  We said we planned on making "crisply edited videos" from the Summit and the first edited video is Kitchens Not Treatment Rooms.  You can decided if it is "crisply edited" or not.   It is 2 minutes and 12 seconds long, not counting the closing credits.  We hope to increase the pace of getting videos out.  
CAFE TAC Peer-Run Crisis Alternatives Webinar Series.  The series of webinars on peer-run crisis alternatives is fantastic and I'm pleased to report they are being posted as they go along.   
I have had trouble viewing the videos in Chrome so if you do, you might try a different browser.
There is one live webinar left on Psychiatric Advance Directives next Thursday, June 23rd, at Noon Eastern Time.  It is free, but you need to register if you want to attend live.
