The CAFE TA Center is inviting Alternatives 2013 attendees to take part in our new video project, “What Does Recovery Mean to You?”
The idea behind the project is to capture the voices of people in recovery, so they can share what recovery has meant in their own life. Then CAFE TAC will take those comments and put them together in a short video that will promote recovery that advocates will be able to share widely!
If you will be at Alternatives in Austin this December and would like to have your voice be part of our project, simply visit our table in the Exhibit Hall. There you’ll find a sign up sheet where you can arrange a time to visit our video interview room where you will participate in a brief interview.
Please help CAFE TAC spread the word about recovery by taking part in “What Does Recovery Mean to You?” at Alternatives next month!
As consumer organizations grow and change, they can experience internal conflict about the path they will take through that growth. Advocates within organizations can share convictions about the importance of mental health, while disagreeing vehemently about how to move their organization forward. So how can organizations manage those conflicts, and find a way to turn disagreement into productive action? CAFE TAC’s latest training, Conflict Resolution: Challenging Organizational Change and Growth, offers some advice on how to understand conflict, and turn it into a net positive for your organization. Check it out today!
Discover Health From Within, which was presented in conjunction with The 15th Annual Family Cafe this June, is a training about expanding one’s perspective about who we are, the sources of our illnesses and diseases, and the ways in which we can optimize our health and live from a dynamic place where dreams once again seem possible. It is about making informed choices about optimal health solutions. This training offers new approaches to health and wellness that are based on research that combines study of the physical body with that of the spiritual, emotional and psychological self. New understanding that accounts for both the neurological and the psychological has illuminated the powerful connections between our mind and body. Research has shown how these connections inform our healing processes, and have opened up new approaches to wellness. This new perspective is too often not readily available to families with a member with a mental illness or disability.
