Course Overview

PhotoVoice is a peer led intervention that can help individuals to first identify their community and then become more active in their community. They do this by setting "SMART" goals and working with their Peer facilitators for a 12-weeks class-based curriculum. They then work with their peer coaches in their community to maintain the goals they have achieved.  PhotoVoice is an empowering tool that has been used in a variety of settings and among different constituencies, including communities of people with psychiatric disabilities.

Target Audience

Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioners (CPRPs) and CPRP Candidates, Certified Child and Family Resiliency Practitioners (CFRPs) and CFRP Candidates, providers, and administrative staff.

Candice Vigil: When not at 2Succed you can usually find Candice working as a volunteer with the community working with young children, preteen and women.  Candice is very active in her community in different areas. She loves to cook any and everything. She loves spending time with her husband, six children, parents and grandson. Her background is in Human Services and she spent 11 years in that profession - until she found my passion at the Mental Health Center of Denver through 2Succeed-the front desk, administration assistant and culinary position there. She loves cliff diving-to travel and try new foods. Diversity is very important to her as a Native American woman, because culture is so different to each person. Native American people are taught to respect all humankind not by color, belief, gender or race; they see all as the same by respecting nature and humankind. Her passion is to help the individuals they serve, with the same passion she has in the culinary field, finding confidence in themselves, facing their fears, expressing their strengths through culinary arts and achieving goals they never thought they could achieve. Teaching students about communication and interpersonal skills with one another, staff and in their personal lives is very important to her. The best part of her job is to watch the progress of the individuals they serve from the beginning of the six-month program and seeing them develop skills and confidence in themselves and obtaining a job, housing, and goals they didn't think they could accomplish.
