by patricia.deegan on Thursday, September 30, 2010 - 3:36pm

The Alternatives Conference is the world premier conference held by and for consumers/survivors/ex-patients. This year the conference is being held in Orange County, California with the theme being "Promoting Wellness through Social Justice". PDA and CommonGround have a strong presence at the conference. Deborah Anderson, the managing partner at PDA is staffing an information table in the exhibit hall which will be open to all 1,200 participants of the conference. Melody Riefer, the director of training for PDA, is conducting a 3-hour institute at the conference and will address how CommonGround supports Shared Decision Making and the use of Personal Medicine. We are really excited about spreading the word about CommonGround and hope that we can stir-up interest in this disruptive innovation.

As you know, CommonGround was created by and for people in recovery from serious mental illness. It is our hope that by bringing the knowledge of the program directly to the people for whom the program is most beneficial, we can continue our mission of creating and disseminating technologies to support the recovery of people diagnosed with mental illness.
