Real Lives

From Mental Health America:

Site doesn't officially launch until Feb 19, 2009

Thank you for being a part of Real Lives.

This one-of-a-kind project invites people who struggle with mental illnesses to break the silence and share their stories. We all know how empowering human connections are to those seeking wellness and recovery. By speaking out about your experiences, you help give a voice to the 57.7 million American adults—and as many as one in 10 children—who have a mental health disorder.

Your story will help bust the stigma that keeps people from getting care and perpetuates misunderstanding about those affected by mental health disorders. We think there’s no better antidote to that misunderstanding than the real lives of real people. And there’s no better antidote to silence than speaking out...

For More...

Welcome to the blogosphere! Great idea for a site. When we cross party lines in the mental health arena and give each other all of the strength, support, insight and compassion we collectively have, great things can happen. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this space.
