Each morning, after I meditate and brush my teeth, I drink a glass of water and offer gratitude for its many health benefits to energize, nourish and sustain my body and mind. 

Water helps boost energy levels, regulates weight, lowers stress, builds muscle and tones, nourishes our skin, reduces kidney stones and helps us stay regular.

I invite you to explore the 7 Wonders of Water, and hydrate for better health. 

Wishing you wellness,

You Can Recover - Robyn's Message of Hope

Since the first time I met Robyn at the Aleternatives Conference in 2015, I have been in awe of her sense of adventure and huge heart. Although she just turned 50, she has lived and worked in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States, propogating the power of peer support around the world. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, she has never let other people's perceptions of what she can and cannot do deter her from living the life of her dreams. When asked what has helped her recover and thrive, she said, "the love and support of her global network of family and friends, her dog, and meaningful work."

Robyn is the embodiment of the quote: "Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible." Thank you Robyn for bringing hope and healing to people struggling with mental health issues around the world. You are a HOPEBRINGER!


Stories have the power to inform, inspire and transform lives. If you have a recovery story, please   submit your story today. Your story will  give HOPE to people struggling with mental health issues around the world, and inspire them to recover and rebuild a healthy, meaningful, productive life.

As a woman who has struggled with chronic anxiety and depression, and a global mental health advocate, I truly applaud this life-saving initiative by the World Health Organization and the World Bank. It is time for us to come together as a global community to make mental health a priority.
