Description

"Some day we wil live in a world where we won't have to call it "brave" when talking about mental illness. We'll just call it talking." Jennifer Marshall, Keynote Speaker and co-founder of non-profit This Is My Brave.

The Wellness and Recovery Committee and its partners invite you to participate in the 16th Annual Wellness and Recovery Conference on October 20, 2017 between the hours 8:30 am and 2:30 pm. This year's conference will be held in the heart of Fairfax, at the Fairfax County Government Center.

The conference promises to provide a day of learning, sharing and discovery as people with "lived experience", professionals, family and community members gather to explore strategies for maintaining mental and physical wellness, managing substance use issues and seeking new resources for taking the next step on their personal and collective journeys of recovery.

The day will include a resource fair filled with opportunities for networking; a keynote presentation that will teach participants the importance of telling "their" story; a lunch presentation from Fairfax County's Diversion First Officers; and an afternoon filled with interactive workshops that will allow participants to explore new ways of expressing themselves, through the arts and new ways of thinking about incoporating "moderation" into one's life.

Professionals can earn 4 Continuing Education Credits (CEU) for their attendnace at the event ; and scholarships are available, but are limited.
