Dear Melinda,

 

The first letter I wrote was three pages so I will try to shorten it a bit.

 

I had absolutely no idea how much of an impact the S.P.I.R.I.T. program would have on my life.

 

I really had no idea people could recover from mental illness, let alone stay in recovery and have a bunch of labels dumped on you.

 

Once I started saying mental health issues instead of mental illness, I felt well because I may have issues but I'm not ill.

 

I am really excited to see how I will be after graduation.  I have already had a few chances to use what I've learned already.

 

Active listening and getting up in front of a group, feeling great about myself and that is just a few of course.

 

If this program had not ever done anything for me except fix my relationship with Xxxxxx, my daughter, that would have been enough to have more training, and would have been worth every penny you spent.

 

This training in four weeks did more than years and years of therapy on both sides, but the training has done so much more for me than that in four weeks I can't wait to see me at graduation.

 

Please do not let the S.P.I.R.I.T. program go.  It is worth all the money spent and all the hard work that Pat, Angel, Adrienne, Jan, Erin and Valerie have put into it. 

 

Please keep S.P.I.R.I.T. alive and going.

 

Sincerely,

xxxxxxxxxx
