Lived Experience Forum:

"I know that a lot of my recovery has come from me and the effort that I have put to build the therapeutic relationship that we now have, in and not merely from my doctor. You can have the best shrink or psychologist in the world but if you don’t actively participate and do the hard work you’re probably only going to tread water or regress." by @Corny  here

 

Carers Forum:
One of our wonderful Community Guide's @Faith-and-Hope wrote this beautiful piece on values: "I think it comes back to values, and trying to balance them as best we can, on a ball, atop marbles on the the floor beneath it ..... and have the courage to simply try, and believe that things can be better, or at least okay-ish .... and worth it ..... and they are worth it ..... and we are worth it ...... and this way the illness doesn’t win either."
