Clinical Focus Groups (CFGs) provide our members with a variety of leadership and connection opportunities, as well as offering a diverse range of learning options for both our members and for the broader mental health community. CFGs are small sub-groups within the chapter; designed and led by the chapter members around a specific topic or area of focus. CFGs function under the auspices of the chapter's board.
