Once a victim of domestic violence herself, Grace Crockett has transitioned from victim to victor and now uses her past experience to advocate for a brighter future of other women that seek to do the same in their own lives. As the author of her aptly named book, “Overcomer”, Grace shares with its readers a glimpse of her road to recovery, and asks some much needed soul searching questions that are sure to motivate you to reach for more. To further extend her reach and continue her advocacy in December of 2012, Grace founded Agnes’ Centers for Domestic Solutions where participants are offered classes, counseling and a wide variety of other beneficial services. Listen live to this dynamic woman on a topic of domestic violence that needs to be heard until it ends. Hear Ya There!
Until then … Make it Great!
More and more, we hear about Recovery Advocacy. But what does that really mean? Why should we care about Recovery Advocacy? What resources are out there? How can people get involved? We get these questions frequently, and as National Recovery Month comes to a close, we wanted to wrap up our experiences from this past month: what we witnessed, what we learned, what resources we found and how we got active. We will also share resources for where you can involved in Recovery Advocacy right in your own community - how to help with policy change, how to get more drug/alcohol education in your school, what organizations are already out there who need your help. We will also talk about what we are doing from a grass roots standpoint with our non-profit Shining Strong; one of the most valuable things we have learned over the past year is that if you can't find the resources you want or need, you can create them!
We are blessed to have found many partners and fellow advocates willing to help spread the words that there IS hope, and RECOVERY WORKS.

This show highlights the stories, arts, and activism, and advocacy of folks with brain injuries and other disabilities. It's not a show about medicine, research or rehabilitation.

Asperger's Syndrome - Another well-defined disease state and they are talking about the usual suspects...advocacy, awareness, etc. Now they do take a lot of Care in defining the disease charachterics.
...but isn't it disease itself that needs to be eliminated? If so, wouldn't wellness need to be achieved? Consequently, the care of defining wellness and it's pursuit is where the care needs to be placed....not in defining disease states and creating advocacy groups.
