Johnson County Mental Health Center’s annual Recovery Conference will take place this Friday at Cleveland University-Kansas City. More than 100 community members have registered to attend the conference and take advantage of the sessions which will provide tools and skills to help them on their road to recovery.
“The journey to recovery is a long one and sometimes can be stressful or lonely…” said one Mental Health Center client, who will be speaking at the conference. “Events like the Recovery Conference can help those who feel lost or alone to not feel as such and to have encouragement from supportive people to encourage them to continue their journey.”
The conference will feature a keynote address from local singer and songwriter, Una Walkenhorst. As a Kansas City native, she will speak to her own mental health journey and perform several of her original songs.
The Recovery Conference is from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Friday, May 10. Breakfast will be provided starting at 9 a.m. and lunch is also provided. The conference is free and interested individuals can register online at jocogov.org/mentalhealth, by calling 913-715-7880 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
