Be part of the conversation about mental health and substance abuse
The King County Recovery Coalition is a proud co-sponsor of the King County Behavioral Health Legislative Forum, where you will hear compelling personal stories from individuals in behavioral health recovery, as well as the perspectives and priorities of legislators and county councilmembers.
Each year we host Recovery in Action, an interactive pre-event leading up to the forum, to inspire community members to take actions, great and small, that make a difference in the recovery movement.
Recovery in Action consists of various booths for actions like: (1) creating signs that celebrate recovery and reduce stigma, (2) writing cards to individuals in inpatient treatment, (3) a photo booth, and (4) a recovery art station which we will take to legislators during our Recovery Action Day (RAD) in February at the Capitol. Participants get a passport and stamp for each activity, and a prize when they complete all the activities. Snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are provided.
Finally, we conclude Recovery in Action with facilitated roundtable discussions with legislators before the forum program begins. This is an exciting moment to speak with your legislators and neighbors about why behavioral health issues matter to you.
