From Alternatives 2009:

The largest national mental health conference organized by and for people with psychiatric labels, the next Alternatives conference will be held Wednesday, October 28, 2009 through Sunday, November 1, 2009, at the Hilton Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska.

Each Alternatives conference offers in-depth technical assistance on peer-delivered services and self-help/recovery methods. Beyond the exchange of knowledge and networking, Alternatives offers a rich social, artistic, and healing environment. Said one attendee of a prior conference, "The conference transformed me so I can transform the system."

This year the event is being organized by the National Mental Health Consumers' Self-Help Clearinghouse.
