H&I Committee Seeking Recorded Shares By Dual-Diagnosis Members

The H&I Committee is looking for members who have a dual diagnosis (mental health as well as substance abuse) to record 5 to 10 minute shares that will be available to patients at inpatient psychiatric institutions. Ideal candidates are individuals who were admitted to a hospital or psychiatric unit, but include anyone who self-medicated a psychiatric condition with marijuana only to find that complete abstinence and working a recovery program were necessary to effectively cope with the illness. Flyers with more information are available at meetings.
