A Little Bit About Foundations
In the early 1990's, mental health service providers were
focusing increasingly on mental health recovery. The benefits of peer
support, recommended by the surgeon general, the presidents mental
health commission, and groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, inspired the peer
support movement in mental health recovery.
The Stark County
Mental Health and Recovery Services Board provides funding to operate
Foundations, which is run by consumers and provides peer support, advisory board
experience, volunteer opportunities, and inter personal empowerment to Stark
County's consumer's. Foundations is not a clinical agency. The board, staff, and
members are in recovery, dedicated to living more satisfying lives, and to
helping others along the same path..
Foundations was recently awarded some additional funds from our funder the Stark County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board.
