As 2014 comes to a close, there is a barrage of reporting from media outlets on the top stories of the year. Politics, disease, violence…it can be overwhelming and disheartening to think about the year behind through this negative focus, particularly when we all have experienced and know the many positive aspects of 2014.
So we are here to put a Spotlight On those who are the Evidence. Individuals, organizations, and communities who have made the connection to others and been the example, offering hope and encouragement and reminding us that wellness and recovery is an everyday occurrence.
Today’s spotlight is on the GoodNewsNetwork, and specifically its posting of mental health related articles at GoodNewsNetwork-Mental Health.
Check out the site’s Top 10 Good News Stories of 2014 for a wonderful doses of hopefulness and encouragement. And share your highlights of the past year with us—as we leave 2014, who were the people that were the Evidence for you and your community? And as we move ahead into 2015, help us keep the Spotlight On the good news of mental health recovery—be in touch! Send us tips on the Evidence by posting in the comments below, emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and sharing on our Facebook page.
