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.

thank you Gabor
that sufi saying is one very precious to me.. i had used it in my final dissertation in college.. way back in 1980. Back then i had been labelled as radical.. "a subversive bastard".. i treasure that label till today with a sense of humour and a smile
it is good to have you with us
thanks again
