I think my gift is…

…being able to communicate recovery principles and practices to widely divergent audiences: clinical practitioners, peers, family members, researchers, academics and policy makers. Sometimes I think of myself as a translator between the world of mental health professionals and the world of mental health consumer-survivors and vice versa. My message is that our humanity is the common ground on which we meet and that recovery is not the privilege of a few exceptional people, but a possibility for all.

I have lectured on recovery and empowerment to audiences around the world. If you are interested in having me speak feel free to contact me.
