Inside our Minds Webinar

Posted by on September 24th, 2018 Posted in: Mental Health, Webinars


Join the National Network of Libraries of Medicine- Middle Atlantic Region on November 16, 2018 at 3:00 pm EST for their monthly Boost Box series. This series aims to boost your knowledge of National Library of Medicine products and additional health information topics. The month of November will feature guest speaker Alyssa Cypher, MPA from Inside Our Minds.

Inside Our Minds is a Pittsburgh-based organization that works to elevate the voices of people with lived experience of mental illness and madness. As an entirely peer-controlled organization, Inside Our Minds works in response to the lack of people with lived experience of the mental health system involved in leading and advising mental health advocacy organizations. This webinar will discuss the foundations of Inside Our Minds and its commitment to community-based radical mental health programming, providing an overview of what Inside Our Minds offers and why it is important for our community.

Alyssa Cypher, MPA, is the founding Executive Director of Inside Our Minds. Alyssa serves as a board member for the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR). She also works with a number of peer-led mental health initiatives for teens and young adults, serving as the mental health specialist for Creative Nonfiction’s Writing Away the Stigma program and a qualitative consultant for the Supporting Our Valued Adolescents (SOVA) research project – a study that utilizes closed social media platforms to observe how adolescents use social connection to learn about depression and anxiety. Alyssa was recently honored for her work as a Pittsburgh Business Times 30 Under 30 winner.
