Artbeat Studio was pleased to participate in the Provincial Recovery Working Days on June 9th and 10th, 2015.
As part of the Working Days, the Mental Health Commission of Canada released the first Canadian Guidelines for Recovery-Oriented Practice. These guidelines will be a great asset to work in Manitoba related to recovery. The event invited key stakeholders from across Manitoba to learn more about recovery and system transformation from international recovery expert, Dr. Mike Slade; and inform the development of service level outcome indicators for Manitoba’s mental health system.
The Provincial Recovery Working Days also featured the launch of educational video Recovery: Hope Changes Everything; seeking to promote a conversation about what recovery is and what are the marks of a recovery–oriented mental health system. Recovery-oriented practice emphasizes hope, social inclusion, acceptance, choice, community participation, personal goal setting, and self-determination.
