Personal Recovery Stories

This page is designated to all the brave people in our community who live with a severe and persistent mental illness that were willing to share their stories. Every year, the SCCBI hosts two Stakeholders Meetings where we recognize the achievements of what people have overcome to not let their mental illnesses define their lives. We gather to share stories of lived experiences and the journeys of recovery.

Here are the stories from years past:
