A Reason to Hope.  The Means to Cope.

Your Recovery Journey

Recovery from mental illness is possible!  A person living with mental illness can accomplish goals, reconnect with self and others, and recapture meaning and purpose in life.

Your Recovery Journey is based on the experiences of people who have a mental illness and who know there is hope, who are well and doing the things they want with their lives.

The program offers ten free interactive weekly sessions for people who have experienced any mental illness, each weekly session is ninety minutes long, and all are facilitated by people in recovery who can give you valuable information that will help you on your recovery journey.  You’ll also learn how to find peer support and build new life skills.

Session topics:

· What is recovery?

· Quality of life

· Self-management

· Medication as tool for recovery

· Moving forward: Personal action planning

Your Recovery Journey is free for people who have experienced mental illness.  You do not need to be a member of the Schizophrenia Society of Nova Scotia to participate in the program.  Come learn more about recovery and how you can live beyond mental illness!
