New Foundation “Recovery 101” Mental Health Program set for August 15

The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation’s Community Health Collaborative (CHC) will be hosting its “Recovery 101: How to Become a ROCC Star” program on Sunday, August 15 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., CDT.

Working with UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW), the Association of Persons Affected by Addiction (APAA) and the National Alliance of Mental Illness North Texas (NAMI), the program creates awareness and educates participants about the key concepts of mental health and addiction recovery.

This complimentary virtual seminar is interactive and is suitable for all participants no matter their background or experience.

“We are thankful to the CHC’s partners and health systems for making mental health and recovery a priority during this ongoing pandemic” said Patti Taylor, director of quality and patient safety services at the DFWHC Foundation. “We plan to roll out this program to 16 counties in North Texas.”

The Community Mental Health Grant Program was established by House Bill 13, 85th Legislature, Regular Session, 2017 and authored by Representative Four Price. The 86th Legislature appropriated $45 million in 2019 to continue the Community Mental Health Grant Program in 2020 and 2021.
