“Business brings mental health recovery to fore”

Article Link

This November 10, 2012 article on the PennLive.com website talks about a business whose aim is to promote recovery from mental illness.  The business is called Support the Journey and has an online presence at http://supportthejourney.com

I have met Shelley Bishop, and am VERY pleased to share this article with my readers, Shelley is one of the folks who has been an inspiration in the mental health community here in Pennsylvania for many years, in fact I was very familiar with her name long before I ever met her, which in this case is an awesome thing.  I tip my “I’m The Evidence” ball cap to Shelley and everyone else who is involved with Support the Journey
