Community Outreach

Community Outreach

 

In order to reduce stigma and promote wellness and recovery throughout our community, it’s necessary to provide education and insight into what it’s like to live well with a mental illness. In many of our presentations, one or several people with lived experience of mental illness will share their personal stories with the audience, discussing their struggles and their journey to recovery.
