Juan Vélez Court

Juan Vélez Court currently works as a Mental Health and Peer Recovery Consultant for the Mental Health and Anti-Addiction Services Administration of Puerto Rico, and also provides consulting for the National Empowerment Center. He is also a former consultant for the BRSS TACS Technical Assistance Center. Among other roles, he works as a liaison to bridge the gap between peer and clinical services, facilitating and coordinating trainings, workshops, and strategic opportunities to integrate people with lived experience in the workplace and maintain the integrity of the role of peer services. Other activities performed include workshops at Alternative Conferences, for the Latino population in California through state efforts and extensive experience in systems of care, and working with children, adolescents, and their families through support groups and other activities. His journey into these roles began through his own lived experience overcoming multiple challenges which led to his involvement in advocacy efforts. Vélez looks to incorporate audiovisual media as a modern resource to engage people in creative discussions about mental health and wellness. Currently a resource for eCPR initiatives, he remains inspired and hopeful to create new opportunities to engage youth and young adults in efforts that promote their wellness and motivate them toward their goals.
