NNED Partner of the Month
Posted: July 01, 2017
In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country the NNED selects an organization to highlight once a month. Mental Health Partnerships has been selected as the Partner of the Month for July in celebration of Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.
Mental Health Partnerships (MHP) was founded, and continues to thrive, on the basic principle that people with mental health conditions can and do recover because they have the resilience to direct their own journeys in overcoming significant adversity. And while recovery—in all its different forms and paths—is possible for all, there’s a greater chance for recovery in the context of an informed, caring community with family, friends and peers involved.
MHP was the first in Pennsylvania to provide peer-to-peer mental health services from neighborhood drop-in centers, which have evolved into their recovery learning centers, based on what used to be considered a radical idea: that people in recovery could help others with mental health conditions in their respective paths toward recovery by example and through mutual support.
