What We Can Learn From the Ali Shuffle

For many of us in The Stability Network, we lived our first decades in a certain way. Then the illness struck and our mental health diagnoses forced us to adapt and grow or decline. A significant part of that transformation meant learning how to identify our strengths and minimize our weaknesses.

The Courage to Own and Tell Your Story

Through creating autobiographical music, my life has become more integrated. I feel more confident and courageous in navigating vulnerability and difficult conversations.

The Mathematics of Hope

A lot of people say they’d die for their child. I’ve never heard anyone say they’ll show them what it takes to live.

The Long and Noble Road to Lasting Mental Health

Understanding the pre-condition and three requirements offers hope. The stigma associated with mental illness is fading and science is tackling mental illness from every possible angle.

Being Our Own Mental Health Advocate

We need each other to combat stigma, to make others like us realize they can overcome it. We need each other to advocate for ourselves. The Stability Network is about the possibility of hope and recovery. We are a message of empowerment.
