Principles of Support

  • We will see the individual first, not the illness
  • We recognize that mental illnesses are medical illnesses that may have environmental triggers
  • We understand that mental illnesses are traumatic events
  • We aim for better coping skills
  • We find strength in sharing experiences
  • We reject stigma & do not tolerate discrimination
  • We won't judge anyone’s pain as less than our own
  • We forgive ourselves and reject guilt
  • We embrace humor as healthy
  • We accept we cannot solve all problems
  • We expect a better future in a realistic way
  • We will never give up
