A Few Words From David Joyce

In our modern world, between bitter politics and harmful decisions that affect persons with mental health issues, the path to recovery isn’t always easy. However, Rise Phoenix Rise has offered me this opportunity with open arms. Diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, my path to recovery has been long and painful. When I first was introduced to Rise Phoenix Rise in 2016, I had already recovered from my darkest years; however, what I learned opened my eyes to new opportunities. Always taking you for who you are, I found the hard working PRS’s of Rise Phoenix Rise are extremely serious about helping anyone on their path of recovery, a chance I was not afforded. In addition, they themselves have been on their own path of recovery which was helpful to me when I first joined.

In conclusion, Rise Phoenix Rise has been established as part of my mental health foundation. Without them, I would not know that such groups could be so helpful and effective in helping clients. Whether you are struggling from day to day or just want to help people, I highly recommend Rise Phoenix Rise as a valuable service.

    The idea of Rise Phoenix Rise is profound and a new way to give back to the community. The mental health community becomes stronger for helping peers when peers they know it’s okay to be themselves. I’ve been a mental health most of my life, but it wasn’t until now that I found the connections needed to feel accepted into a support group. See, for me going to support groups is a way to listen and get involved. Listening is the kindest thing us peers my do for each other. I am happy to have met you David. I thank you for your kindness. Rise Phoenix Rise is self made and the people involved don’t have to feel alone.
