2020 Mental Health and Substance Use Recovery Training Conference Workshop Proposals

The 2020 Mental Health and Substance Use Recovery Training Conference is October 29-30, 2020, at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in the Wisconsin Dells.

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) and the conference planning committee are accepting proposals for 90-minute workshops.

Proposals that demonstrate evidence-based practices, promote strength-based approaches, include the voice of lived experience, address diverse populations, enhance skills, support recovery, and energize participants are encouraged. Proposals are due February 21, 2020.

UWSP Continuing Education staff and the conference planning committee will review all proposals. Selection will be based on:
  • Demand for the topic.
  • Presenter qualifications.
  • Demonstration of diverse perspective.
  • New information and best practices.
  • Balance of mental health, substance use, and peer-based information.
  • History of the topic at the conference.
  • Previous conference evaluation feedback (if applicable).
Most workshops will not be repeated year after year. Selected workshop presenters will be notified by email no later than May 29, 2020.

Compensation for workshop presenters is one complimentary conference registration and one night of lodging. Requests for additional compensation will factor into the workshop selection process and must be pre-approved by UWSP.
