SURVEY ON A SOCIAL RECOVERY MEASURE

 

Participants are sought to engage in a study on social recovery. Social recovery is defined as the ability to lead a full, contributing, active life. The purpose of the study is to develop a measure of social recovery. Casadi is looking for people to take the measure and three others that have already been developed to see if her measure performs as expected. 

 

You must be 18 years or older and in recovery from a mental health challenge. Participation is voluntary. Those who take the survey can choose to enter an optional drawing for one of two $100 Visa gift cards. The computer-based survey will take about 30 minutes to complete. Your name will not be revealed. If interested, please contact your support worker or visit HERE.

 

Casadi identifies as in recovery from bipolar disorder and substance abuse and is a Portland State University School of Social Work PhD student. Feel free to contact her with any questions or concerns:
