Web Article Logo

The Missouri Recovery Network is excited to announce that we will be hosting the first annual Peer Leadership Summit March 18, 2016, at the Lodge of Four Seasons at the Lake of the Ozarks.

We welcome MRSS-Ps, CMPS, VA Peer Support Specialists, and those who have completed their peer training to a two-day conference that will help establish a statewide network of learning, sharing, and collaborating.  MRN wants to create an environment of peer inclusion, and improve the perception of peer support.  Additionally, this conference will serve to promote excellence in peer support statewide, as well as bring peer support providers together as one collective voice.

MRN has been a long-time champion of peer support services, and we recognize the importance of these services in helping people reach their maximum potential and attain recovery.  It is for this reason that we have decided to invite all peer support specialists from across the state to this summit.

7.5 CEUs will be available for this conference and attendees will have the opportunity to attend a variety of lectures, including:

  • Self-advocacy
  • Co-occurring disorders
  • Self-care/compassion fatigue
  • Ethics
  • Trauma informed care
  • Building a team culture
  • Medication-assisted recovery
  • Substance information and education

The keynote speaker for this event will be Kimberly Brown, SAMHSA Regional Administrator (Region VII), and the closing keynote speaker will be Gary Wilbers.

Registration is $30 (money order or check only) and the deadline is Friday, March 4, 2016.

The Lodge of Four Seasons hotel rate is $109 per night for single/double occupancy (regular rate = $139/night).  Reservations will be accepted and guaranteed at this group rate no later than February 26.  A special group rate of $109/night for single/double occupancy will be offered one day after the conference (as vacancy allows) if you would like to extend your stay at the Lake.  Hotel stays are not included in the registration cost, and are at the attendee’s own expense.
