The Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities is hosting its first Virtual Recovery Series, in place of our annual Recovery Conference. Sponsored by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and The Cardinal Health Foundation, the series will highlight important issues related to recovery from both mental illness and substance use disorder and provide opportunities for learning and connection for those in recovery, their loved ones, and behavioral health professionals.

Have you ever noticed how some people respond to challenges, trials, and trauma in healthy ways, while other people respond to those same challenges, trials, and trauma in rather unhealthy ways? What is the difference? The latest psychological and neuroscience research both point to the same key factor: one’s mindsets. In this workshop, we are going to talk about the (1) foundational role our mindsets play in our recovery, and (2) the practices we need to develop to harness the power of mindsets to unlock a healthier mind. In covering this material, we will be especially sensitive to recent challenges we have faced (e.g., COVID-19 pandemic) or may soon face (e.g., difficulties associated with the holiday season).
