This webinar will introduce participants to the importance of developing community connections for supporting and sustaining a life in recovery.

It will challenge the common practice of using segregated behavioral health venues for social, occupational, and other pursuits in favor of a “community first” approach that uses mainstream community activities to help meet people’s needs.

The webinar will present a practical, person-directed, community based approach to helping people build their preferred lives with focus on community resources and ‘natural’ supports.
