Robert Lee Sutherland Seminar XVIII
In September of 2014 The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health hosted the Robert Lee Sutherland Seminar XVIII: The State of Mental Health Recovery: Research, Training, and Practice. Mental health recovery has been identified as the most important aim of behavioral health services and is set to transform current standards of practice. The goal for this day-and-a-half event was to increase participants' awareness and knowledge of the concept of mental health recovery, and to educate participants about the state of mental health recovery research, training, and practice.
