Early this year, Via Hope launched its Recovery Reads program as part of a larger effort to build awareness about recovery and wellness. The program combines monthly reading selections on mental wellness with thought-provoking discussions.

The selected readings appeal to a diverse audience that is interested in learning more about recovery and promotes much discussion among the Recovery Reads participants.

The Recovery Reads program is part of Via Hope’s Recovery Institute. Concurrently, as part of its awareness-building efforts, the Recovery Institute launched a webinar series on recovery and wellness and other related topics. Both of these programs aim to elevate the discussion on critical topics in mental health.

Via Hope, which is partially funded by the Hogg Foundation, offers training and technical assistance for people in recovery from mental illness, their family members, youth consumers and professionals. Their work through the Recovery Institute strives to transform mental health culture and practice in Texas into a more participatory system focused on community and strengths-based recovery.  The programs created by these community collaborations invite consumers to have a meaningful voice in their treatment and transform the Texas mental health care system.
