Please join us on Sunday, February 23, at 2:30 p.m. (following patient visitation) for the monthly Family Education meeting. The session will be a panel discussion with members of the SMSH clinical staff.
Light refreshments will be served.
Family Education Meetings are a way to share information with our patients' family members about the hospital, mental illness, and other information that may be helpful. Family Education Meetings are open to family members of current and/or fomer SMSH patients.
The Department of Mental Health has filmed several personal stories of recovery from our Peer Support Specialists. The individuals who shared their stories know the value of their lived experiences and want to inspire hope in others by sharing their personal stories. Marshia Moody shares her journey to recovery in this month’s video. Please share the link with your colleagues. Our goal is to bring attention to recovery which not only benefits the individual, but the entire community.

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential. Recovery is unique to each individual and can truly only be defined by the individual themselves.
