This year, in addition to events, we will be using digital media to highlight stories of recovery, lived experiences, and success.  Our objective is to bring into focus people overcoming life circumstances that include mental health distress and to reinforce that recovery is the expected outcome.  The videos below will be posted on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn channels.  We invite you to “like,” “comment,” and “share” these posts.
