We Give Hope


We offer a wide array of programs to promote mental health awareness, hope, and holistic wellness. All our programs are customized to the unique needs of our audiences.

We look forward to collaborating with you!


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 give us HOPE to cope, survive and thrive. Our Storytellers are dedicated to share their stories to save lives and create social change.

If My Words Could Make A Difference

The “If My Words Could Make A Difference” Youth Mental Health Campaign aims to improve youth mental health by putting a stop to silence, shame, and stigma by courageously sharing lived experiences and ideas on what needs to change and be done to improve attitudes, support, and treatment.

ASHA International thanks our program funder OCCAP and Creative Life Lines, Mind Matters, PC for their support and collaboration on this project.

ASHA International’s My Story My SUPERPOWER High School Program
Student-led highschool clubs dedicated to shining a light on mental health & ending stigma, one story at a time.

ASHA International’s My Story My SUPERPOWER High School Program provides students the platform to destigmatize mental illness and promote mental health and wellbeing through the power of personal stories. Our story is our SUPERPOWER!


Wellness is achieved when all dimensions of a person’s life are integrated and in balance: Physical, emotional, financial, social, occupational, intellectual, environmental, and spiritual. Our innovative and highly interactive Wellness Workshops will inspire participants with a renewed sense of hope, and provide a wide array of tips and tools to cultivate resilience and wellbeing.


Culture is central to mental health and wellbeing. A person’s cultural background influences how they perceive mental illness, and how much stigma they attach to it. Culture also determines whether or not a person seeks help, when and where they seek help, their coping skills and social supports. Sharing their personal recovery stories, our storytellers will explore how culture influences mental health and wellbeing and provide healthcare professionals practical tips to provide culturally competent responsive care.


The You Can Recover Project’s mission is to give HOPE to people struggling with mental health issues around the world, and inspire them with personal insights on how to recover and rebuild a healthy, meaningful, productive life.
