Sharing our stories of lived experience in order to inspire and provide hope to others is at the heart of peer support as well as a driving force in personal recovery. It is also a way to effectively educate our communities and policy-makers about the concept of recovery, and illustrate what helps to support recovery and what creates barriers.
“Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Want to make a point or raise an issue? Tell a story.”
Please Join us in learning the art and skill of storytelling!
