Write to Recovery, a website designed to support people affected by mental health problems on their journeys of recovery, was launched on 11 June 2014 at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh. The launch forms part of the Scottish Recovery Network's 10-year anniversary celebrations.
Iriss.fm went along to chat with the guest speakers, acclaimed 'indie' author Linda Gillard; and Robin Ross, both of who have used writing on their own journeys of recovery. We also had conversations with attendees at the launch - Ashley Campbell, Jim Campbell and Sandy Nisbet. We hear their personal stories and the role writing has played in their lives. Iriss.fm also spoke to Simon Bradstreet and John McCormack from the Scottish Recovery Network about the Write to Recovery website.
