Peer Support: The First Issue of the Hamsayeh Diary Published
Hamsayeh, the first user/survivor peer support group based in Pune published the first issue of their newsletter, which they humbly call diary. This issue reports on the first five meetings of the group.
A sufi saying particularly drew my attention:
To your mind I am mad
To my mind, you are all sane
So I pray to increase my madness
And to increase your sanity...
... my madness is from the power of love;
your sanity - from the strength of unawareness.
I am proud that I could be present at the birth of Hamsayeh and wish the group all the success and happiness such initiatives deserve.
