The principles of self-care are the same as for recovery, as exemplified by recovery-oriented systems of care. These principles promote a person-centered, strengths-based approach that helps people marshal the individual, social, and environmental factors that support their well-being.This webinar gives you skills to make lasting change so you can be well to do well.
