Regional VMAP Care Navigation Advisory Board Application
The purpose of each VMAP Care Navigation Regional Advisory Board is to provide regional communication between community services and the VMAP Regional Hub Team. Meetings will include an opportunity to share local service updates, discuss community concerns and trends related to mental and behavioral health, and explore advocacy opportunities.
These Regional Advisory Board meetings will be held quarterly during weekday work hours and may have in-person or hybrid options for attendance. We anticipate that they will be 90-minute meetings.
Including family voice is very important to our process. In an effort to encourage and acknowledge the participation of individuals with lived experience, at least one advisory board spot will be reserved for an individual with lived experience in the mental health system (or their caregiver). If you are interested in participating in this group as a family representative (outside of your professional role) we are able to provide a stipend for participation.
We are currently accepting applications from individuals who live and/or work in VMAP’s Northern and Eastern regions (see map for clarity). Please submit application by September 21st for primary consideration.
If selected to participate, we would like board members to commit to an initial 2-year term.
