Never before has the future of behavioral health care been so important!  With mental health in particular in the public dialogue, and with the future and direction of healthcare changing by the moment, it is imperative that the recovery workforce is growing, well-networked, comprehensively-trained, and empowered to advance psychiatric rehabilitation principles of self-directed, self-managed care that is state-of-the-art, and universally available to those who seek it. 

The Summit is a unique and critical opportunity for the entire psychiatric rehabilitation community - from front-line staff to CEOs - to connect on a national level, and benefit from innovative programming covering a broad scope of cutting edge topics - led by pioneers in the field.

Join us in Denver this June for our 41st Annual Wellness and Recovery Summit, brought to you by the Academy of Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Recovery and PRA, in partnership with the Colorado Chapter.  Grow professionally, and leave re-energized, focused, and well-equipped to provide more effective care!
