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.

“Gratitude for art show (letter)”

Article Link

This letter was written to thank the folks involved with the Bell Socialization Services,  Mental Health Recovery art show.  I wish that more pieces of this nature would be seen in the media showing that there are things that are positive that people with mental illnesses do and that we are not all violent criminals that the media would have the public think we are.  I tip my hat to the folks involved with the art show in this article and the many other projects/contributions that people with mental illness make that go hugely unnoticed.
