Finding Her Tribe: Women’s Relationships with Peers and Community

Tuesday, April 11
2:00 p.m. 3:30 p.m. EST

Recovery does not occur in isolation; as women heal, they connect or reconnect with others and community agencies. This helps establish a sense of purpose and a sense of belonging. Although good clinical staff are important, equally as powerful are peers who support, motivate, and model the power of recovery. Integrating peers creates footprints on the path to a life that can seem uncertain. This webinar looks at the importance of inclusion and community relationship to women’s health and well-being. Topics include social inclusion, sense of community belonging and meaningful purpose, peer supports, mutual help and recovery communities, and others. Register Now

Motherhood: What It Means for Women’s Recovery

Tuesday, May 9
2:00 p.m. 3:30 p.m. EST

For many women, caretaking—especially caretaking in motherhood—is their most defining and most meaningful role. Substance use and mental health problems may challenge a woman’s ability to effectively parent. Child welfare is often the entry point into behavioral health care. Many effective interventions and supports are available to support women, their children, and their families. This session will discuss those interventions/supports, along with the importance of support for women who choose not to parent. Learn more about using motherhood as a pivot point to access help in substance use and mental health, incorporating family-centered approaches for women with behavioral health disorders and their children, meeting the needs of complex families, and more.
