Building resilience, inclusion, and hope for mental health in Wisconsin communities

The Power of Story

The research is clear and consistent. Getting to know someone who has lived both the pain of illness and the resilience of a recovery journey changes hearts and minds, which leads to actions of inclusion, support and hope. And getting to know many people and their stories has the broadest and longest lasting impact.

Stories come in many forms

Face-to-Face: Of course this one is best! Reach with non-judgmental curiosity and get to know people living in recovery with mental health challenges.
