The NSSB session prides themselves on becoming knowledgable on mental health and ways of writing about mental health. Having "No Stigma" in our community and all around us is an important way of life for many. They see how they have applied tools and services like My Voice Media Center in their lives and learn how to tell that story to the public.
We offer these peer stories, even our peer specialist's story to the public as a way to help the participant grow and project themselves as owners of their own story. This integration of success stories into the community help us grow and learn what may have worked and see firsthand the wellness and recovery inside of our community. We get to share how our organization, My Voice Media Center has been influential on our peer's journey to wellness and how we can continue to be a medium for their self-expression.
