Live & Learn, Inc.
"Live & Learn, Inc. is a social enterprise that provides research, technical assistance, and knowledge translation services to behavioral health systems. Live & Learn specializes in the meaningful inclusion of the perspectives of people who have used mental health services in research and policy projects. We synthesize lived experience with learned expertise: those who have "lived it" through their own struggles and direct service to communities, and "learned it" through professional training. Live & Learn improves health and social welfare systems by collaborating across stakeholder groups—practitioners, patients, advocates, and researchers—to promote public health by identifying common concerns and mutual solutions. In collaboration with these partners, we conduct projects that generate and disseminate actionable products and information related to research and policy in the areas of workforce development, program implementation/sustainability, patient advocacy, and service user experiences. Live & Learn operates a clearinghouse for peer support in crisis response www.PeerRespite.net, as well as an employment-related resource hub for individuals with psychiatric histories www.ReclaimingEmployment.net."
