Robert Lee Sutherland Seminar XVIII
The State of Mental Health Recovery: Research, Training, and Practice
September 8-9, 2014
The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health invites you to attend the Robert Lee Sutherland Seminar XVIII: The State of Mental Health Recovery: Research, Training, and Practice. SAMHSA defines mental health recovery as, "a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential." Mental health recovery has been identified as the most important aim of behavioral health services and is set to transform current standards of practice. This fall, come find out about the future of mental health care training and upcoming funding opportunities offered by the foundation to advance mental health recovery in Texas!
"Recovery should not be mistaken for a passing fad. Indeed, its roots stretch to the birth of psychiatry in the 18th century. As its reintroduction is intended to bring about a fundamental transformation of behavioral health care—in the phrase of the 2005 Federal Action Agenda, "a revolution in care"—recovery also should not become simply a new word to be used in describing current practices." - SAMHSA website
This day-and-a-half event aims 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.
