About the Event
Hope, Dignity & Inclusion
Recovery refers to living a satisfying, hopeful, and contributing life, even when a person may be experiencing ongoing symptoms of a mental health problem or illness.
In partnership with Manitoba’s Provincial Recovery Champions Committee, the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) is organizing a recovery-focused learning event to support the implementation of recovery-oriented practices in Manitoba and promote the Guidelines for Recovery-Oriented Practice.

An Opportunity for Participants to:
