Join us on June 7 & 8, 2018 for On Our Own of Maryland’s Annual Conference at the beautiful Princess Royale Hotel in Ocean City, MD.The theme for our 2018 conference is: “The Truth is Out There:  Peer Support as the X-Factor in Recovery.”  We will explore the vital link between peer support and recovery, and how peer support is being woven into various systems and settings, including mobile crisis, homeless outreach, hospitals, and peer-run centers.

 

Our keynote speaker is Tonier Cain.  You may remember Tonier from her biographical documentary “Healing Neen.”  Tonier is the epitome of resilience, having overcome a traumatic childhood filled with abuse, rape and neglect, a 19-year addiction to crack cocaine, and years of homelessness, incarceration and prostitution.  Tonier is now a national recognized inspirational speaker and trauma-informed care expert who has traveled to all fifty states to train mental health professionals on how to better serve trauma survivors struggling with mental health and addiction issues.
