Each year Grassroots Empowerment Project conducts Listening Sessions statewide each year. It’s a chance for legislators to hear from mental health consumers their most pressing needs for systems change. About 6 minutes into this video, hear what Executive Director Molly Cisco says about the lawmaker who said, “I’ve never before talked to a constituent of mine with a mental illness.”

The organization also sponsors:
• The Consumer Conference—a conference by and for mental health consumers
• Empowerment Days—to educate policymakers and involve them in discussions on the issues identified from the Listening Sessions
