On November 14th, 2019, Canadian Mental Health Association will be officially opening a new Recovery College as part of a long-term plan to address community needs for effective addiction and mental health services. The College – the second in Alberta – has been modeled after internationally recognized and evidence-based Recovery Centres from across the world, from the work and recommendations of the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
Peer support is rooted in the knowledge that hope is the starting point from which a journey of recovery must begin. Peer supporters can inspire hope and demonstrate the possibility of recovery. As part of a broad provincial strategy, CMHA Wood Buffalo will be opening the second Recovery College in Alberta. The Recovery College model gives individuals – and family members – the skills they need to support their own recovery; developed by people with their own lived experience. This allows them to build their resiliency and mental wellness in their own way, on their own terms.
We look to celebrating with you on Thursday, November 14th!
