July 09, 2012

Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) Webinar Series is being implemented to help States, Territories, Tribes, jurisdictions, providers, and other stakeholders develop recovery-oriented systems of care across the United States. This webinar will continue the discussion on how recovery and recovery support can be implemented to best meet the needs of people experiencing mental health, substance use, and co-occurring conditions. It will begin with a review of the framework of family-centered recovery and recovery-oriented approaches to addressing co-occurring disorders in young people; move to a discussion of the importance of youth voices in the recovery process and in the context of juvenile justice, welfare and education settings; followed by an overview of parental peer supports and their integration with treatment and other services; and conclude with a discussion of models for collaboration across behavioral health and other sectors responsive to the particular configuration of needs, strengths and resiliency of youth. Webinar participants will have the opportunity for questions and answers with the presenters.
