How informed, educated and well-written was Audra Kinner’s letter ("New perspective on mental health," May 17). We need more people like her to educate us all on the subject of mental "illness" and the shift from treating an illness, to focus instead on recovery.

There are so many organized efforts in this new form of treatment, including the Wellness Center, Recovery Learning Community, Ham lin St., Reach-out, as well as the Brien Center. This new philosophy has changed my life! Thank you again, Audra.
