Topic: What Works for Me to Help Achieve Mental Health and Recovery
Speakers: Panel of Community Members Living with Mental Health Disorders
Who better to discuss illness management and recovery than those who are doing it every day? A panel of community members with lived experience dealing with their own mental health conditions will discuss the things they do every day to help them cope with “illness” while finding their way toward “wellness” and the life they want to live. Come and join us to hear tips from these experts and gain an understanding of what their personal recovery looks like.  Panel members will each briefly review their personal illness and recovery story and a question and answer session will follow. Don’t miss this informative and inspiring program!
