PEER RECOVERY ART PROJECT INC
May 27, 2012

I have worked within the mental health field as an Occupational Therapist for 20 plus years, and became acquainted with Peer Recovery Art Project several years ago, when they launched. SInce then, I have remained in contact-several times a year and participated in Peer Recovery Art Project, both as a participant in showing art, and overall attendance to their events. Peer Recovery demonstrates there is a road towards a worthwhile life beyond a mental health diagnosis. As my involvement grows, I realize that Peer Recovery Art Project is at the forefront of living this concept, and demonstrating this to surrounding communities. No one mentions mental health within the organization-yet everything that is Peer Recovery is about promoting sound mental health. It is all about welcoming inclusion, and the knowing that everyone now, has a place to go where they can feel involved, creative, and grow within an active recovery. Truly this organization is at the forefront of something remarkable-art, in all its forms-in a setting which promotes wellness for young through old-all within a design that not only states community involvement but ACTIVATES community involvement. This is accomplished by attracting all members of the community-together, with no boundaries. Recovery within a mental health diagnosis is now a possibility for many, and a program such as Peer Recovery assists the individual to remain a part of their own communinty. Truly, this is a concept whose time has come! Debra@loving1withmentalillness.com
