“The past does not define us. It's discovering who we really are and how we're going to get there that does that. The Village - where real change happens.”
These words describe The Village’s core beliefs and are heard in our new TV and radio ads. They also describe my own personal journey.
Voices are powerful. When they speak the truth – even when it’s painful or harsh – people listen. Personal experiences with child abuse and mental health conditions are not easy topics to discuss. But, the impact of sharing your perspective and your thoughts about how our health care system can help prevent abuse in the first place and how children and young adults can get the help they need to recover from or cope with mental illness, can be immensely rewarding.
