Thanks to the generous support of the University of Chicago Center in Beijing and the University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus in Hong Kong, Professor Zhiying Ma at the School of Social Service Administration organized a series of events and activities to promote peer support and explore collaborations in Summer 2019. On July 6-7, “Achieving Recovery through Peer Services: Guangzhou Medical University-University of Chicago Community Mental Health Forum” was held in Asia International Hotel, Guangzhou. Speakers included leading experts on recovery and peer support from the United States, as well as policymakers, researchers, leading psychiatrists, social workers, persons with lived experiences, and family caregivers from across China who had been trying out peer support in different capacities. They shared their knowledge and expertise, discussed cultural adaptability of peer support, and explored practical challenges and solutions. There were more than 200 people in the audience, many of whom were people with lived experiences and their caregivers. As some audience members remarked, it was a rare occasion to have researchers, providers, persons with mental health needs, and caregivers in the same room, talking about an issue of common interest on an equal footing.
