Family Member Story Telling Training (FM-STT) is a FREE recovery-and-resilience-based training.
It recognizes that the stories of Family Members (Parents, Grandparents, Children, Siblings, Partners, Sponsors, Mentors, Faith Members, Friends and Family of Choice, etc.), are a vital part of moving forward through systematic transformation. This training is open to everyone (18 and older) and offers many helpful tools which encourages the sharing of personal and challenging experiences with others to help inspire and motivate them to do the same. It also provides vast opportunities to network and share resources. This Training is a gateway for those who wish to help others through their own life experiences, through the Behavioral Health System, as well as their families and communities.
