About this Resource:
This 4-part series looks at mental health respite care from the peer perspective, including discussions on its history and future direction, when and how it is being used (both in the Southeast and nationally), and the ways it can benefit one's recovery journey. In Part 3 of our series leaders of respite centers across the country shared their lived experience operating their centers. Speakers discussed how respite standards have emerged and how different elements impact the ability of respite to open or remain open, including politics, NIMBYism, economic fluctuations, state and national leadership changes, and even the weather..
