September is a month-long celebration of recovery happening in communities nationwide, and now is the time for you to join the movement! The theme of the 2014 25th Annual Recovery Month, "Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out", encourages people to openly discuss and speak up about behavioral health conditions and the reality of recovery.
To start these recovery discussions, a dynamic and interactive nationwide webcast will be held live on September 15, 2014 at 12 noon CST. This event will bring together a panel of leading experts and experienced practitioners in recovery and health, with the goals of:
- Expanding our understanding of the role that peers in recovery play in initiating and supporting long-term recovery and improving overall health
- Fostering dialogue at national, state and local levels on how to integrate peer-based recovery throughout all systems of care
- Provide specific, concrete action steps that people watching the webcast can take to foster the spread of peer-based recovery throughout all systems of care
