How did it develop in the U.S.?

These are just two of the many questions that will be addressed by Larry Davidson, Ph.D., Director of the Program for Recovery and Community Health at Yale University. Davidson, a person with lived experience, is more than a casual historian and his presentations on this topic have captured the attention of audiences throughout the U.S. and abroad

This is a presentation no one in the mental health or addictions fields will want to miss! Davidson’s presentations are never “dry” and his expert knowledge brings to life important aspects of peer support. You will be able to use the “chat” function during the webinar to ask questions of the presenter or share your thoughts with other participants.
