Last week we announced a strategic partnership with the Massachusetts chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). This exciting collaboration builds on the work we have done together over the past six months bringing Expressive Digital Imagery® (EDI) to participants in the NAMI Peer-to-Peer program throughout eastern Massachusetts.
Peer-to-Peer enables adults in recovery from mental illness to experience compassion and reinforcement from peers who have experienced similar challenges. NAMI participants have found that EDI provides a level of connection, engagement, and mutual support that is often not possible through the spoken word alone. This video contains testimonials from Eliza, Merlyn, and Andrew, recent participants in Peer-to-Peer who all experienced the use of EDI as a method for self-expression.
