Of course we learned much more that I don't have a clue how to articulate, but it's good, I think, to list seven items that can be articulated that do encapsulate much of what we did on the trip.   I'm also looking forward to some implementation.   Rocky will be starting a consultation service to primary care physicians working in cultures other than their won with Miriam, the Coop's doctor, as one of our first attendees.   Tony and Sally in Australia and Barbara and me in Vermont have further resolved to fund raise to create a safe house for people who are psychotic, where they can get peer help and can be safe and can stay outside the psychiatric system.   I'd like to explore the Catalyst-Clemente program more for our population and perhaps to see how it could be helpful for homeless people in Vermont.   At Union Institute & University, we will be implementing a Narrative Medicine and Psychology certificate program soon, and I am hoping that this program will seem valuable to people in Australia and that we can recruit aboriginal people to populate it. Cultural exchanges are already happening several times per year for the Coop without our being present, but our initial Camp seeded that process and made it seem more possible.   There is funding for at least one more camp in 2013, so until then, that's all for the Australia Cultural Exchange Journey.
