Join us for a weekend of:
INSPIRATION…through the unique perspectives of our KEYNOTE SPEAKERS.
KNOWLEDGE…through more than 16 peer-focused EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS led by leading experts, educators, authors, and consumer leaders.
SKILLS…through 4 in-depth PRE- OR POST-CONFERENCE INSTITUTES that offer recovery-based tools and strategies to consumers, peer specialists, and family members.
LAUGHTER (back by popular demand)…through a special STAND-UP COMEDY NIGHT put on by 10 conference attendees and comedian, counselor, author, and founder of Stand Up for Mental Health David Granirer. A huge hit at the 2008 conference--you'll be inspired, empowered, and quite possibly hysterical with laughter!
CONNECTION…through PEER ROUNDTABLE SESSIONS where peers share ideas and personal strategies based on their lived experience about a variety of wellness-focused topics.
ENCOURAGEMENT…through SUPPORT GROUPS held during the conference to provide a forum for mutual acceptance and self-discovery.
PEERS…through a conference COMMUNITY where you can connect with old and new friends to network and share stories, wellness tips…and hope.
