Please join us for this webinar to hear how mental health peer leaders are partnering with hospitals through Recovery Dialogues in an attempt to shift the culture and enhance recovery. Specifically, the webinar will feature the National Empowerment Center’s work with the Worcester Recovery Center and Hospital and the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health over the past few years.

Participants will:

Learn the basics of Recovery Dialogues and how they were implemented at the hospital including challenges, successes, and tips for doing the same in your state. The webinar will be interactive and include audience participation, as we would like the webinar to serve as an example of an online Recovery Dialogue in action.

Recovery Month – Gaithersburg

Recovery Month

At its meeting on September 6 the Mayor and City Council declared September, 2016 as Alcohol and Drug Addiction/Mental Health Recovery Month. Gaithersburg owns and operates Wells/Robertson House, a 14-bed transitional housing program for homeless men and women in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, and DeSellum House, which offers transitional housing for Wells graduates. Activities throughout the month highlight the message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover from mental and/or substance use disorders.
