Our time in Japan is coming to an end. We are here in Tokyo to enjoy the sites and have one last meeting. We had the great privilege to talk with Dr. Ito and his staff at the National Institute of Mental Health of Japan and his staff about the benefits of incorporating peer specialists within mental health programs. I also had the opportunity to talk to different employment specialist and multiple researchers looking at the IPS model. The conversation was great. The staff were all excited about incorporating recovery models into their practice.
The next days we had the opportunity to explore Tokyo a bit more. Below are some photos from a couple of the sites! All in all the trip has been great. I learned a lot and I look forward to bring the information back to Chrysalis and the rest of the mental health community in Madison. Tomorrow back in the air and back to Madison.
