We Give Hope

Living Proof Workshop

Mental Health Advocacy through Storytelling Workshop


Personal stories have the power to inform, inspire and transform our lives. Stories connect and comfort us in our shared struggles, help us know that we are not alone, and offer us HOPE to cope, survive and thrive. Personal stories can also create social change.

ASHA International is delighted to present LIVING PROOFa Mental Health Advocacy through Storytelling Workshop facilitated by John Capecci to train people eighteen and older living with a mental health condition in the Portland metropolitan area to share their stories to destigmatize mental illness and promote wellness by encouraging people to get help, and providing them with personal insights on how to create healthy, meaningful, productive lives.
