People who depend on Region Ten for mental health or addiction support are feeling more empowered to heal after the Consumer Advisory Conference Friday.

Each year, the conference celebrates recovery and helps attendees continue building skills to stay healthy. This year's conference was held at the Holiday Inn on Emmet Street in Charlottesville.

Molly Yates, the director of Integrative Care Region Ten, said she wants the conference to inspire people to start down the path to recovery.

“I hope they feel hope,” Yates said. “I hope they feel that living a new chapter is possible. They’ll learn some skills that can help them live more fully and they’ll be inspired to support other people and get support from other people.”

Art from the conference, including resilience banners made by attendees, will be on display at City Space in December.

Region 10 hopes the conference and art will inspire anyone in need to seek help.
