Region Ten holds annual Consumer Recovery Conference

The theme of this years’ Consumer Conference was One Body, One Mind, One You.   

Region Ten was pleased to hold the 12th Annual Consumer Advisory Council Recovery Conference on October 27th. The Consumer Advisory Council (CAC) is proud to put this conference on every year and  always looks forward to an inspiring and informative day.

This year CAC welcomed 275 participants who focused on having a healthy body and a healthy mind. Beth Gager, the keynote, spoke of how sometimes we think our life is taking us away from what we think we need most, only to bring us right back to where we truly belong.

Molly Yates presented from the BOOST program, the Integrated Care Project at Region Ten, and some BOOST consumers shared how this program is helping them make positive changes in their wellness goals. Brie Reimann spoke to us about her work with the National Council for Behavioral Health and her work with Integrated Care Programs. Eboni Bugg ended the day with an interactive presentation on taking better care of our bodies and our minds to reduce stress.

Overall, the day was a refreshing and inspirational reminder of how we can take care of ourselves and our community.
