HARRISBURG, Pa., March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania Recovery Organization – Alliance (PRO-A) and PA Mental Health Consumers' Association (PMHCA) are hosting a statewide conference on Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel.

The Recovery Works Summit is an exciting and historic opportunity to bring together the mental health and drug and alcohol recovery communities.

People in recovery, providers of behavioral health services and policy makers will  come together to strengthen our collective voices, use our talents and experiences to expand employment opportunities, unite our voices on advocacy issues and eliminate stigma and discrimination.

The Summit will focus on three ways to improve recovery success:

  • Increase public awareness of the value of recovery;
  • Explore challenges and inspirations in training, employment and career pathways;
  • Inform public policy on peer based recovery support services.

This work will be done through keynote speaker presentations, panel discussions, workshops, a plenary session and networking.

Please join us as we use our lived experience to improve our behavioral health systems and change lives through recovery and new opportunities across our Pennsylvania communities.

*This summit is funded through a SAMHSA Recovery and Resiliency grant awarded to the Pennsylvania Recovery Organizations – Alliance in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Mental Health Consumers' Association.
