This website was created by two people who have mental health diagnoses in order to ease the recovery journey of our fellow peers. We understand that recovery is just as much a process of discovery as a lifelong journey. Many times, you don’t know what exactly you don’t know. Therefore, this website was developed as an attempt to gather some of those lessons and resources together to provide a more clearly defined path to recovery. We, by no means, believe that there is only one way to take. There are, however, some common elements that the majority of recovery journeys possess. So, take some time and explore the website. Pick and choose what is relevant to your life at the moment and then, remember to return for more as your life and the site, itself, develops. We want you to know that you are not alone. That there is hope and that there are places to turn to for support. You are valuable and capable of making substantial changes in your life. We believe in the potential that resides in you!

Although generously funded by an Integrated Health Block Grant from the state of Michigan and in cooperation with Washtenaw Community Health Organization, the views expressed in the website belong to us and are not necessarily representative of the staff and/or administration of either entity.  We are extremely blessed and grateful to have had the opportunity to develop this idea to its fruition and hope that it in some small way can help us all recover – whether it be from stigma or a mental illness. If you have any ideas for improvement or would like to contribute material to post, please e-mail it to peersupport@ewashtenaw.org.

May those who love us, love us.

And for those who don’t love us,

May God turn their hearts.

And if he can not turn their hearts,

May he turn their ankles,

So we may know them by their limping.

an Irish blessing

This website is dedicated to the long-suffering and supportive families, the faithful friends, perseverant professionals, and the open-hearted strangers who reach out to those with mental illness with kindness, prayer, and deeds.

You may never fully know how much it is means to us. Thank you.
