This video was uploaded to YouTube on March 26, 2014 and offers insight into peer support, and puts faces to stories about recovery from mental illness. This video is focused on Kentucky, but I feel that it is something that anyone could benefit from regardless of if they are in Kentucky or any other state. The message is both positive and universal.
