Join us for an Education Session on Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018, in Tate Hall (Overcash Building on Central Campus)
The event will feature guest speaker Sharon Galusky from Promise Resource Network (PRN). PRN was started in 2006 in Charlotte, as Mecklenburg’s PROMISE to embrace all people and create opportunities for wellness, healing and transformation. PRN is a peer-run organization that employs people in recovery to partner with individuals, families, communities and organizations to advance recovery from emotional distress, mental health and substance use challenges. PRN’s services are contributing to the development of a recovery-oriented behavioral health system where recovery is valued, expected, supported and funded. Ms. Galusky will share her knowledge about recovery and working in the field by providing personal stories, tools and resources. She will address crisis management and how to deal with disruptive and unexpected events that may threaten our recovery. She will talk about methods used to respond to both the reality and perception of crisis. Recognizing in real time that can help prevent the problem from turning into a full-blown crisis.
