Yesterday, Perry Wellness Center hosted a graduation ceremony for peers and staff who had completed three days of training with the RESPECT Institute of Georgia. Two peer specialists and one peer shared their personal stories of mental illness and recovery.
We couldn't wait to share with you an article from WXIA-TV on former First Lady Rosalynn Carter's attendance at the ceremony. Everyone was honored by her presence and her gracious words about the program.
Please take a moment and read the article here -- and check back early next week for a full story on the ceremony, along with photos.
