Recovery Conference 2012

The Recovery Conference held at the Sheraton Hotel on May 8, 2012 was a huge success. The keynote speaker this year was Dr. Dan Fisher, an individual diagnosed with schizophrenia who went on to recover from his mental illness, attend medical school to become a psychiatrist, world-renowned speaker and founder of the National Empowerment Center. Dan emphasized the point that recovery is a process that cannot be done alone but is facilitated by peer support.

The other featured speaker was Dr. Bob Gardella from Charlottesville, VA. His “Choices in Recovery” presentation educated people on the nature of mental illness, medication use, and tools for recovery.  After a delicious lunch, the afternoon workshops convened before the prize giveaways. The workshops offered this year were: Having Fun on a Limited Budget, Healthy Living, Yoga, and emotionalCPR (eCPR). Everyone had a great time in the workshops, while also taking away more tools to aid in the recovery process.

At the conclusion of the conference we had prize giveaways that included gift cards and prize baskets. Thanks to all who participated to make this such a huge success!!
