Sponsors for the 2022 Virtual Conference

In the true spirit of Psych Rehab PAPRS continues learning and adapting! The 2022 virtual conference is appropriately titled Facing Challenges: Resilience and Renewal.  In the past year we have lived our PAPRS vision of promoting the ability of all individuals to achieve their life goals through recovery and resilience-based learning through education, advocacy and networking. 

To achieve our vision we have updated our trainings to capitalize on virtual adult learning needs.  While some regulations have been suspended due to the pandemic, organizations have continued to look for educational and growth opportunities for their staff. To continue to meet that demand we need your help! We are looking to you, our dedicated champions of recovery services, to help us to continue to provide excellent, cutting edge educational opportunities. You can do that by again sponsoring our conference.

Please help us to promote our 2022 virtual conference: Facing Challenges: Resiliency and Renewal  April 21, 22, 28 & 29, 2022. . We couldn’t think of a better title and we are offering an incredible array of Keynote Speakers and workshops! This year some of our experts include:
