My Story. My Voice.
This matching service is designed to create and facilitate mutually beneficial opportunities for individuals with mental illness to share their recovery journeys in a variety of forums. Sharing recovery stories is beneficial for the story teller as it can help make sense of the events that have occurred in their lives and can strengthen emotional resilience and coping capacity. Being the recipient of a recovery story is also beneficial as it can instill hope and challenge stigma. Through this service, we aim to match individuals with the desire to share their personal journey with individuals who would like to learn from the expertise that comes with lived-experience of mental illness.
(This section will be opened once we have speakers available)
