You see, for me, hope, healing and recovery are not individual attainments or life states. Like the best meal or song or spectacular view, these are most profoundly felt when shared with others. I will forever thank MOOD DISORDERS ASSOCIATION for allowing me to share this finest of all gifts.
Karen Liberman
If I had not had depression and then healed, I would not be the person that I am today. Healing has given me the gift of not taking a single second for granted. It’s given me a new lease on life, and I am savouring every moment.
Joey DAMMIT!
Ultimately, I’ve become a believer in recovery and hope. There’s hope for many people out there.
Laura Coughlin
I really believe in recovery. I’ve seen so many people who have recovered so tremendously
Michael Koo
If you don’t have hope, you can’t heal. Without hope you can’t recover. I guess hope is the biggest thing for me. When I think of hope, I think of patience and perseverance
Whitney Taylor
The support group was a place where I was accepted – I didn’t have to explain anything to anyone. There were people you could actually go out for coffee with and take walks with, and, even if you never said a word, there was this understanding. I developed coping skills, and I learned to laugh again.
