In 2012 Michigan was one of 8 states to receive a grant award that was focused on uniting the voices of recovery for individuals with Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders. It was called the Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale-Technical Assistance Center Strategy or BRSS-TACS award. The Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Administration was responsible for this effort. Part of the work with this award involved developing a recovery message that could be shared around the state, which could show that individuals with a mental health or substance use disorder can and do recover and lead a fulfilling life. This video tells the recovery story of two individuals that show this is possible.
