HOW WE ASSIST

          In order to overcome the trauma of psychiatric illness and the discrimination associated with it, one needs to become empowered. To be empowered is to gain control over one's life and to build self-esteem and independence. This is done through making one's own decisions, having freedom of choice, and helping other people with the same kinds of difficulties. In this way, one participates in the recovery process and gains dignity and respect through accepting responsibility.
