Individuals frequently use EDI on an ongoing basis, extending beyond the programs where they initially experience EDI. Critt was introduced to EDI through the NAMI Peer-to-Peer program, and he now creates imagery each day in support of his ongoing recovery. Critt has his own blog where he shares his powerful images at https://realcrittjarvis.wordpress.com
A powerful aspect of EDI is its ability to extend beyond community and treatment programs, as individuals integrate EDI into their daily lives. Independently creating imagery as a means of self-expression and discovery allows people to continue sharing their stories with peers, friends, and family members. To support this facet of EDI, all participants in EDI workshops receive lifetime free access to the MyMoments app.
