The *ONLY* Mental Health PEER RUN Organization
in Santa Cruz County, California
Many faces, one faith- in each other.
We are a diverse group of people – artists, musicians, African-Americans, eccentrics, believers,
schizophrenics, teachers, transgendered folks, bipolar people, public servants, the differently abled, business owners, people on SSI/SSDI, Anglo, ailurophiles, Buddhist, Christian, Taoist, gay, lesbian, bisexual, straight, Latino, Asian, atheists, parents, children, depressed, joyful – united by our shared faith in the knowledge that we have gifts to offer each other and the world... What we have in common is that we are all mental health peers- or have been- and although we all have differing experiences, many of us know what it's like to be medicated, to be hospitalized, to hear voices, to want to end our lives, to want to begin again- perhaps in a single day- and we know what it's like to be ourselves, in this sometimes cookie-cutter world, to be different.
