December 16, 2015 Webinar on "Reframing Recovery"

A one-hour webinar sponsored by the Peerlink National Technical Assistance Center (Peerlink NTAC) on "Reframing Recovery" will be held on Dec. 16, 2015, at 2 p.m. ET. The webinar, presented by Donita Diamata and Robyn Priest of the Peerlink NTAC, "challenges perceptions and ideals around mental health recovery, including how we, as a community, define it," Peerlink writes. "Too often, our ability to recover is questioned, challenged, and defined by others. With visuals, frank discussion, narratives, and thought-provoking statements, participants are challenged to reframe how they see recovery from mental health challenges. 'Reframing Recovery' has been offered in several formats to a variety of audiences, including peers, peer support workers, mental health providers, and allies, all with generally high praise.... In this first-ever webinar format, we will discuss the concept of recovery in detail through story-sharing and interactive questions."
