MENTAL HEALTH & RECOVERY BOARD ANNUAL DINNER

"People are often more important than pills"

Featuring Keynote Speaker: Dan Fisher, M.D., PH.D.

 

October 2, 2018 at Ashland University's Convocation Center at 5PM, the Mental Health & Recovery Board's Annual Dinner featuring keynote speaker, Dan Fisher.

Dan described his own process of recovery of life, and his understanding that recovery is not recovery from an illness in the medical sense, but is recovery of meaning and purpose in his life. He has found the value of a trauma informed approach, and has found that an overemphasis on medication alone reduces the humanity of both the clinician and the person with lived experience. He has found emotional CPR and dialogical approaches such as Recovery Dialogues and Open Dialogue valuable in developing meaningful, emotionally connected relationships which are the basis of enriching one's life at all levels.
