At the February 11th History of Medicine Society meeting, Janet Paleo and Anna Gray from Prosumers International will present the history of the mental health Prosumer movement and how it is working to help those suffering from mental issues recover.
What is a Prosumer? According to the Prosumers International website, a Prosumer is a person who is PROactive in their recovery and PROvides back to the community. The mission of mental health Prosumers is to empower all people to know recovery from mental issues is possible and that they can live powerful, fulfilled lives on their terms.
Prosumers realize they have control over their lives by realizing they have choices in all things. They realize they have resources to call upon for help, then they try to do something meaningful to make a difference in someone else’s life, gaining a sense of well-being in the process. Attending Prosumer group meetings helps in this process.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
