This event has passed. Slides and video from this event can be found here.

We’re in the “me age.” But this age of the individual also means the age of the consumer, and health & human services communities are not immune to this shift. In the behavioral health field, the growing realization that services need to be more patient-centric and patient empowering is called the Recovery Movement.

Join us on September 29 at 2:00pm EST for this exclusive executive web briefing to hear Shawna McGuckin, Reaching Recovery Representative at the Mental Health Center of Denver offer insights into this movement and evidence-based practices for how behavioral health organizations can prepare staff and clients for this growing shift. Ms. McGuckin will use examples from Denver that are replicable at other organizations and give tools and strategies for moving your organization into the “me age.” In addition, AJ Peterson, General Manager of CareConnect and MyHealthPointe at Netsmart and Tricia Zerger, Solutions Consultant of Netsmart will outline how to develop and leverage technology to drive patient engagement within your own organization.


During this 90-minute executive web briefing, attendees will:

  • Discover the methods that Mental Health Center of Denver used to enable recovery transformation at their organization
  • Learn how to develop and leverage technology to drive patient engagement
  • Explore effective integration strategies for enabling recovery within your organization
