Video Stories of Hope.

The power to change. To overcome problems. To find a better way. To live a happier life. Recovery and resiliency are series of small steps. Each one is part of a journey and each should be appreciated.

To help community support organizations and peer support groups address the stigma of mental health that can hinder people from seeking needed treatment, we offer the following video testimonials by real consumers sharing their experiences in treatment and how they have benefited from peer support. These heart-felt stories offer encouragement and hope, and demonstrate that people in recovery can and do live fulfilling lives.

By downloading these video files for use on your websites, you can give your participants the opportunity to listen to, and draw strength and comfort from, these real stories from individuals in recovery that inspire hope.

Note: Please select the WMV files if you wish to download and view the videos using Windows Media Player. Please select the FLV files if you intend to embed the videos on your organization’s website.
