CELT is a four-day conference designed to give mental health consumers important tools for successful leadership and the skills to make your voice heard. Many organizations, facilities and localities are seeking consumers to join their boards, committees, and work groups to improve mental health services and focus on high quality services. Community Service Boards and local Human Rights Committees are required by Virginia law to include consumers in their activities.

Topics covered include:

  • Conflict Resolution
  • Cultural Competency
  • Advocacy
  • History of the Mental Health Consumer Movement
  • Conducting Effective Meetings
  • Identifying Issues and Strategic Planning


CELT is supported by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Services through a limited number of scholarships available to consumers. Total cost for those who do not qualify for a scholarship or choose to self-pay is $500 which includes tuition, meals, & lodging.
