How did Recovery Library get started?
Our philosophy is simple...give people the keys and they will free themselves.
Pat Deegan PhD & Associates creates keys - web applications, tailored information, videos, manuscripts, and trainings - that help people free their human potential and recovery after a diagnosis of mental illness.
One of these keys is CommonGround, a web-based application that helps people prepare to meet with psychiatrists and arrive at the best decisions for treatment and recovery. Within CommonGround, there is a comprehensive resource library, but it can only be accessed by CommonGround users.
We created RECOVERYlibrary as a way to allow everyone access to these wonderful resources. We truly believe that any one of these resources might be the key to recovery for you, or someone you know.
