Think Recovery

The Department of Mental Health has filmed several personal stories of recovery from Mississippi Peer Support Specialists. The individuals who share their stories know the value of their lived experiences and want to inspire hope in others by sharing their personal stories.

Jessica Whatley shares her journey to recovery in this month’s video. Please share the link with others. The goal is to bring attention to recovery, which not only benefits the individual, but the entire community.

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential. Recovery is unique to each individual and can truly only be defined by the individual themselves.
