Join me in supporting real change. Let’s support good in the world and make a difference.
Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for Mental Health Connecticut's Write On! program.
MHC’s Write On! program is designed for individuals who want to find their voice and share their truth through the healing power of writing and storytelling. Participants leave Write On! with advanced writing and storytelling skills, new ways to cope during times of emotional distress, and the confidence to share their story in a way that demystifies mental illness and ends stigma in their community. The University of Hartford’s Center for Social Research, known for its interdisciplinary expertise and its mission of strengthening communities through research, recently studied the Write On! program. According to the study’s findings, “Self-stigma undermines the recovery process. Interventions targeting self-stigmatizing beliefs can potentially break the chain of negative events. The Write On! Workshop, hosted by Mental Health Connecticut, is one such intervention.”
