PAPRS Annual Conference


Each year, the PAPRS Conference provides a statewide forum for people committed to psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery to come together, celebrate, share ideas, exchange knowledge, develop new models and approaches and envision ways to create a responsive and empowering mental health system. “Finding the way to Real Connections in the Community” plans to highlight the critical role of forging and enhancing relationships in assisting individuals to realize their goals and dreams.  

The richness of this conference emerges from the breadth of workshops we offer, which come from you, the participants. Submitting a workshop proposal gives you the chance to both benefit and contribute to this vital yearly event. Proposals are encouraged from across the field: people in recovery, family members, providers, administrators, researchers, executive directors, advocates, and government officials. PAPRS especially invites first time submitters to send proposals for consideration. Download the Call for Papers today!
