Rachelle Weiss, MS, has been a peer worker/supervisor/advocate for over 20 years. In 1995, following the closure of a state hospital she was recruited to be the director of a local Consumer Satisfaction Team. She was the first consumer program director in her region and one of the first mental health workers in her area who spoke openly about her personal mental health challenges. Rachelle was instrumental in bringing recovery education and reform to her local and state mental health systems. She has extensive public speaking and training experience and brings a sense of humor to even the most sensitive subjects as humor is her most powerful wellness tool. Her belief in the importance for peer support, education and employment as foundations for recovery have been reflected in her work and in her life. Rachelle is an Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator at The Copeland Center.
