Stakeholders in the mental health system are invited to submit workshop abstracts for consideration for a northwestern Ontario conference under the banner theme of “Recovery in Mental Health: Sharing our successes!” The Northwestern Ontario Psychosocial Rehabilitation Education Committee is hosting the conference on June 5 and 6, 2013 in Thunder Bay.
The event will be an opportunity to share lessons learned from implementing psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery principles and values. Abstracts are welcome from a range of perspectives and topics including experiential (self, family), First Nations/rural/remote, peer services, advocacy/change/stigma, evidence/evaluation/standards, competencies, services/strategies, innovation/research, and leadership.
The committee is particularly interested in interactive workshops that provide detailed descriptions about how a service, program and/or experiences exemplify psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery principles, values and competencies in practice.
The deadline for abstract submission is January 15, 2013.
For information about the abstract submitting process, contact Katherine Stewart, PSR Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
