Day of “SELF” Discovery Conference

The Day of “SELF” Discovery Conference is held each year to celebrate individuals who are involved in their own personal Recovery Journey!

About

This Conference serves as a way to learn tools to help promote Recovery, learn about available resources and services, share experiences related to personal recovery journeys, as well as a time to network and renew friendships made in previous years at the Conference.  Ultimately, this Conference is held each year to celebrate the infinite possibilities that lie within each of us! The 19th annual Day of “Self” Discovery Conference, “Caravan To Wellness: Just For The Health Of It!” will focus on knowledge and awareness to improve the overall mental and physical wellness of conference attendees.

In addition to some very stimulating workshops and presentations, the conference includes continental breakfast, lunch, raffles, and prizes as a part of the day’s activities.  The Joyce King “EveryDay People” Award will be highlighted during the lunch break.  Joyce King believed strongly that people who receive behavioral health and/or addiction services should have a voice in their treatment and that their voices must be heard!  The conference will also include a Recovery Panel Presentation.

Registration
