Town Hall

Join elected leaders and public health experts for a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on the recovery community and where we go from here.

Tuesday, June 23

6 - 7:30 p.m.

The current COVID-19 health crisis in Wisconsin has presented a wide-range of challenges to people in and those seeking recovery from addiction and mental health disorders. As a resilient community, we have come together to focus on solutions and how we will get through this trying time together.

Given the current CDC social distancing guidelines, mutual aid groups that provide life-saving support services have moved online—and many are fortunate enough to have the access to the supports needed to sustain their pathways to wellness. However, many Wisconsinites are still unable to access the services needed to enter and maintain their personal recovery.

In the spirit of community collaboration and learning, the Wisconsin Recovery Advocacy Project in partnership with Wisconsin Voices for Recovery will be hosting a virtual town hall for the recovery community, families, allies, and policymakers on Tuesday, June 23 rd from 6:00-7:30pm CST. The purpose of the town hall will be to discuss the COVID-19 response, supporting those in and seeking recovery, and the impact of this pandemic on the demand for these needed services and supports. The town hall is also an opportunity for citizens of Wisconsin to learn more and provide input on the community funding needs to combat the state’s addiction and mental health crisis.

Join elected leaders and public health experts for a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on the recovery community and where we go from here.
