Alternatives Conference - Memphis, Tennesee
The Alternatives Conference has offered the newest and best information about peer recovery approaches for almost 30 years. This year, the focus is on the power of believing in ourselves, our cultures, and each other. Belief in the promise of peer support and recovery, along with the evidence to support it, has transformed the mental health system and helped grow a national and international community of peers and supporters. http://www.altcon2015.net/

L.A. County supervisors move to consolidate three health agencies
"Los Angeles County supervisors voted Tuesday to consolidate three sprawling health agencies under a single director.
The action caused some advocates to fear that the change would favor county hospitals at the expense of agencies providing mental health and public health services.
Proponents of the new structure include many county psychiatrists and physicians and Health Services Director Mitchell H. Katz, who will probably be tapped to lead the organization. Supporters say a unified agency will save money on administrative costs and better coordinate services to people who may have a combination of physical, mental health and substance abuse issues."
