In 2021, the Recovery Advocate Network (RAN) was founded to address the staggering and alarming disparity in resource availability for individuals suffering from mental health disorders, processing disorders, substance abuse, trauma healing and sexual identity challenges. It is not just people with mental health disorders who benefit from the impact of RAN’s services, but rather, the entire community through the productive contributions of RAN’s beneficiaries.
Much of mainstream society still harbors antiquated perceptions of what exactly it means to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder or have trauma, process disorders, substance abuse or sexual identity challenges. Outdated notions create four barriers to inclusion: discomfort, stigma, pity and fear. RAN embraces ‘inclusion’ as a core value and endeavors to serve as a bridge of understanding between mainstream society and the community challenged with mental health disorders, while seeking to remove financial barriers to treatment.
Thanks to many of you, our Recovery Advocate Network (RAN) Fundraising Online Auction was a success. Every member of the RAN team is a volunteer, so 100% of the net profits will go towards our goal of helping reduce the stigma of mental health challenges and the financial burden associated with barriers to treatment.
Our next auction will be in the Fall. If you would like to donate goods, services, vacation retreats, or some other creative item, please get in touch with the team at email@example.com.
