Voices of Hope and Recovery: Our Stories, Our Lives


The idea behind this project was to share our stories in our own words so that others may learn from our battles and their path to recovery might be easier. Our dream is that everyone will reclaim the person she or he was born to be.
These stories – honest, gut-wrenching and triumphant – are told by people who, through darkness, have found wellness and healing, meaning and purpose. They teach us about finding love in a world that is often harsh and cruel. With courage and insight, they reveal how to reclaim mental health in a culture that often misunderstands the healing process. Our stories demonstrate the power of the human spirit to prevail.
