Individuals with mental illness often have complex medical, mental, and social needs that must be met in order to achieve wellbeing. During part two of a four part interview, Carol Kivler, MS, CSP, an author and founder of Courageous Recovery, Inc., a nonprofit that advocates for mental illness recovery, shares her journey of recovering from treatment-resistant depression, and provides insight into how mental health providers can rise to the challenge to best meet the needs of this vulnerable population. As a health care provider, the consumer depends on you more than you know. Be the voice of HOPE (Help, Offer, Partner, Erase) and recovery.
