identify recovering people for a speakers bureau or forum who can speak to effectivness of recovery
Nothing is more effective than a story well told by a healthy example of recovery... Many of us are out here sharing our stories on blogs. We do recover.

A "speakers bureau" that consists of persons who are representatives of the general population receiving services and not "trained speakers" influenced by the goals of organizations that receive pharmaceutical industry sponsorship and grants, would be productive and refreshing.
Linda Pauley commented
The face and a personal story of recovery is the most effective way to proving that wellness is possible. Most people don't care about numbers on a page.
