Carole Starr, M.S. is the founder and facilitator of the Maine-based volunteer group Brain Injury Voices. Carole sustained a brain injury in a car accident in 1999, which changed her life dramatically. Her inspirational keynote speech “Never Give up on Happiness” has been well received by brain injury survivors, medical professionals and students. In 2010, Carole co-founded the volunteer group Brain Injury Voices, to give fellow survivors the opportunity to “pay it forward” and make a difference as educators, advocates and mentors. This year, the American Hospital Association recognized Voices’ impact and awarded them their prestigious Hospital Award for Volunteer Excellence. The only brain injury group to ever receive the award. For more: www.braininjuryvoices.org.
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers. :)
Some nights we will have a featured guest, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!
