About the Ebook
Through the Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) organized the National Leadership Summit on Youth Recovery as part of SAMHSA’s commitment to engaging young people in developing policies and practices that promote recovery for youth and young adults. A total of 106 individuals from across the United States, which included 86 youth and young adult leaders from prevention, substance use disorder recovery, and mental health recovery, participated in the Summit. Additional participants included government officials, leaders in the recovery movement, and family advocates. We hope the following story in pictures will convey the energy, passion, and enthusiasm, as well as the courage, dedication, and leadership, that invigorated and inspired so many youth and young adults to find their voice to speak up and speak out.
