We told each other about some of the dark times we’ve experienced and how we got through them. We played music, shared our favourite tunes, drank tea, chatted and most importantly listened to each other. There was huge power in telling the stories and in being heard. We found each other’s stories incredibly inspiring. Over the weeks we recorded interviews and music and worked together with documentary maker Leeanne O Donnell to make 4 short audio documentaries that captured the essence of our Recovery process. We are sharing them in the hope that they might help others who are having a hard time. The chair will be here all day so you can listen all at once or come back another time. The Recovery Stories Project is a Cork Mental Health Services initiative.
