Pat created Library for individuals pursuing their own wellness and recovery and the people supporting them in their journey. Library provides practical tools that help practitioners and peer supporters integrate health, behavioral health, and recovery oriented practice in their daily work.

What you'll find
Library has 3,000+ multimedia resources, including first person accounts of recovery and wellness, learning tracks, and all of Pat’s papers, speeches and videos. It addresses a variety of mental health, wellness, and addiction recovery topics. It works on Internet-enabled computers or tablets.
We create and carefully review Library resources; there are no ads.
How people use it
Recovery partners, such as health plans and managed care organizations; federal, state and county mental health authorities; multi-state, multi-service provider networks and health homes; and peer-run organizations sponsor Library access to increase member engagement and to develop direct service staff skill in decision support and shared decision making.
Teams, such as a single provider site or program, a peer-run center, or an academic program use Library to onboard and train current and future direct services staff in recovery-oriented practice. Teams also use Library resources to run billable groups, and to engage clients in self-care during and in between sessions.
Individuals and their families and friends use Library to increase knowledge about recovery, to find out what others have done when faced with similar choices, and to stay informed and engaged about their options throughout the recovery journey.
