"The impact that this Wellness Action Planning training is already having on my life and on the way I dealt with 2 clients already this morning is nothing short of profound.  The group, especially colleagues in HCRS that I pass every day, are newly connected with each other in a way hard to describe.  Moreover, I believe that everyone at HCRS must have the opportunity to discover this information and training. It is not a document or book we can stick in our bulging folders or on the shelf of myriad 'how to' literature--- it is an experience.'

Our organization is committed to weaving Wellness Recovery Action Planning into the fabric of our system of care, so we can provide alternatives and a holistic framework to support individuals through their journey towards wellness and recovery."
