Mental Health/Mental Illness IP Project

The 2016  Conference Agenda Report included a survey to determine priorities for recovery literature. The topic that most regions prioritized for the next information pamphlet or booklet was “Mental Health.” That same Conference passed a motion, “ That the NA World Board develop a project plan which includes a budget and timeline to create an informational pamphlet specifically about mental illness and recovery for consideration at the 2018 World Service Conference.”

The Conference agreed to prioritize the topic mental health/mental illness and collect input from the Fellowship over the course of this cycle about the focus and content of the piece. Your input will help shape a project plan which will be included in the 2018 Conference Approval Track material and voted on at WSC 2018.

The deadline for input is March 15, 2017 so hurry!

Please click the link to open the online survey or download a file to print. Please discuss at your homegroup or service committees.

Survey For the Daily Meditation Book Project

We [NAWS] included a literature survey in the 2016 Conference Agenda Report so that members could express their ideas for what are the next literature priorities in NA. In the book-length category, there were two different options for a daily meditation book—a daily meditation book featuring a spiritual principle a day and a daily meditation book based on Living Clean. Both options were highly rated on the survey and we are collecting input from the Fellowship to help develop the focus of the book so that we can frame a project plan for consideration at the 2018 World Service Conference.

Please click the link to open the online survey or download a file to print. Please discuss at your homegroup or service committees.

Please complete your input by 1 June 2017
