Listening to Voices of Lived Experience in Recovery | Recorded Webinar



This 75-webinar features a facilitated panel conversation among individuals in recovery from mental health and substance use challenges.

This is the second webinar of a 2-part series. The panelists will address questions related to the recovery process, the impact of trauma on recovery, posttraumatic growth, dealing with stigma and racial discrimination, harm reduction, and what they’d like behavioral health practitioners to consider in supporting recovery. They will also take questions from the audience.


Our facilitators always make reference to great resources during sessions.  Find their lists below.
