A very special fundraiser is happening today in Jackson. The fundraiser benefits ARE, Inc. Drop-In Centers. ARE is a great place or those in revovery to surround themselves by their peers and work together to motivate and continue to work on themselves and their recovery. Mental health and addiction dance with each other and it's important that we shake the stigma.

I learned about ARE a few years ago. I shared my recovery story at their location. Sharing my story is good for me and others. We continually motivate each other to achieve and mantain sobriety and good mental health every day. It takes one day at a time and when you are surrounded by a group of your peers doing the same thing it gets contagious in a good way.

To that end, we strive to:

  • Increase Employment of Mental Health Peers
