Description

EVENING the frayed edges: Ripples of Recovery is the second anthology of

personal narratives from writers who wish to present to you, the reader,

your friends, relatives, co-workers, and to healthcare professionals, our

stories of mental health experience, and the milestones in our recovery.

We chose the theme of Ripples of Recovery for this second collection

of stories in recognition that mental health and mental illness are not

experienced in isolation. It may seem at times that our actions are our

own, yet the truth is, when we are well or not well, what we do ripples

through the lives of others. Bearing that in mind can be an impetus to

begin the path of Recovery.

The stories reflect what we know about mental health: that each person

is unique and has the individually appropriate answers to their needs;

the challenge is to be looking for the right questions, especially from

caregivers and our supporters, and trust in the process of change and

growth through self awareness.

We are complex beings, and as such, applaud the recent movements

to revisit the underlying belief of our medical systems that disease and

illnesses arise from a discreet source.

We hope that you enjoy and learn from our stories. Telling them to you

helps us to know that what we have learned can be shared, and send

Ripples of Recovery out to the community at large. Please share them with

your circles, too.
