Writing for Recovery

Writing for Recovery provides writing workshops as well as a time to talk and share in recovery groups.  Participants are encouraged to write personal stories of inspiration, struggles and perseverance helping individuals with renewal and healing.  We help people discover the power of written word to process trauma, build self-esteem and support healthy sustained recovery. 

The Mental Health and Recovery Board (MHRB) of Ashland County launched a “Creative Writing for Recovery” initiative in 2016, funded by the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation, which kicked off with a recovery-focused seminar, followed by a series of eight intensive weekly writing clinics. A spin-off writing group started meeting monthly in October 2016.  Here is a link to a recent article Pathways Peer Support Program  Launches "Writing for Recovery" Group.


We are pleased to announce the launching of an exciting Anthology Project!   Learn more HERE!
