Are you a young person in recovery? Share your opinions to help other young people get the help they need !
What issues are particularly important to young people in recovery? You are invited to participate in a telephone focus group, to be held on February 28, that will try to identify what specific issues matter most to you, as a young person in recovery. How are your experiences as a teenager or young adult different than the experiences of adults in recovery?
How we tell our stories matters. Faces & Voices of Recovery, a non-profit advocacy group dedicated to making it posible for more people to get the help they need to recover, is developing a set of webinars to help young people in recovery learn how to tell their stories publicly so that they have the greatest impact. Faces & Voices will use your ideas to tailor its message training specifically to young people in recovery, helping them become as effective as possible as recovery communicators – bringing a message of hope to other young people seeking long-term recovery and to the public and policymakers.
Please share what you think. There will be two focus groups on February 28, each only an hour long. They are scheduled for 2:00 and 6:00, Eastern time. To join, please email Harriet Ullman at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know you're interested.
