How to Personalize Your Support System

March 12, 2009

What does it mean to build a support system? Generally, a support system refers to the individuals and resources involved in your recovery that encourage, nurture, support, and celebrate your successes. A support system is key to recovery, because we all need support at one time or another, illness or not. Supporters help us recover from many difficult situations. In this Webinar the panel will discuss ways to personalize your support system. They will explore using natural supports, while incorporating community resources, help lines, and self help tools. These examples include: trying to avoid isolation in times of crisis, and what to do when your support system is taken away.
