September is known as Suicide and Mental Health Recovery Month and to highlight these important mental health topics, the Northeast and Caribbean Mental Health Technology Transfer Center invite you to their webinar, Key Elements of Recovery-Oriented Services.
Recovery from mental illness has been studied and written about by theorists around the world. It has been described as both a process and an outcome. This webinar will introduce key concepts of recovery, including its relationship to wellness and other important goals individuals with mental health conditions strive to attain. We will review the types of services and practices that providers and agencies can employ to promote environments that support recovery. Finally, we will identify remote strategies that providers can apply to facilitate recovery goals in a socially distanced environment amid the current pandemic.
- Describe the key elements of recovery from serious mental illness
