Alternatives 2018

The People's Alternatives Needs You: July 29 - August 3, 2018 in Washington DC

Alternatives 2018 is the People's Alternatives.

The conference planning committee of the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR) is accepting applications for workshop presentations.

After more than three decades, the Alternatives conference is the oldest and largest conference of its kind, organized and hosted by peers for peers (people with lived experience of the behavioral health system, emotional distress/crisis, trauma, or substance use/addiction). Alternatives is renowned for offering the latest and best information in the peer recovery movement, and provides an invaluable opportunity for peers to network with and learn from one another. This will be a 'people’s Alternatives,' funded entirely through registration fees and donations. We will be ‘on our own’ again, connecting to the roots of our movement.

Visit the website: www.alternatives-conference.org to find the Call for Presentations form and an online submission link, conference registration information, and other valuable information.

The deadline for submitting proposals is March 16, 2018.
