  • 7th Annual Education Summit: Crafting Change on the Road to Recovery

    Social determinants of health are the nonmedical factors that influence health outcomes. They are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and shape the conditions of daily life. The experience of substance use or mental illness is different for every individual, and often there is a combination of biological, psychological and social factors contributing to why a person may be struggling with behavioral health conditions. This event aims to deliver a collective of avenues practitioners can “craft” with participants to enhance personalized recovery pathways.
