STS program “MSIMRJ” rechristened “My Recovery Expedition”

“Recovery Journey” had become so cliché. I’m changing things up for STS education programs. “Milestones in My Recovery Journey” is renamed “My Recovery Expedition.”

It’s got weight and momentum. It’s less clumsy. And, we haven’t published physical media for this year. Words are cool.

I briefly toyed with “Recovery Safari” … and it somehow seemed slightly culturally insensitive in that way fusion cuisine seems slightly cultural insensitive.

Peers create their own solutions

by Steve Bringe

Unintentionally finding myself involved in behavioral health peer advocacy illuminated a universal truth:

It’s not enough to point out what’s wrong. As peers we must create own our solutions because no one else is going to do it for us.

It’s been an advocacy guiding principle for me and it’s been working out just fine.
