Recovery Occurs in the Context of One’s Life

Description: This webinar will explore the Guidelines required for recovery-oriented practice to address the multiple factors that contribute to mental health problems and illnesses. Even though recovery is a personal journey, it happens in the context of a person’s life, intersecting with family, friends, communities and social responsibilities. Join our guest speakers Katherine Stewart and Regina Casey to learn more about advancing recovery-oriented practice.
