What's going on at NCMHCO?
The North Carolina Mental Health Consumers’ Organization will not be hosting a conference this year because we are expanding our WRAP efforts throughout the state. This year, we’re using the money that would have gone towards the conference to train Copeland-trained facilitators for WRAP!
If you’d like to be trained to become a WRAP facilitator, please answer the following questions and either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com or you can mail in your answers to P.O. Box 27042 Raleigh NC 27611.
