As a staff member of Erasing the Distance, it was really nice to see how our work with mental illness can fit into a larger context of chronic illness. I am struck by how often invisible chronic illness can be stigmatized, disbelieved, or misunderstood -- just like some mental illnesses.
During the workshops, I took note as websites and resources were mentioned, and I wanted to share a few of them here:
- ChronicBabe.com -- a community for women with chronic illnesses
- AdvocacyForPatients.org -- advice and advocacy for patients with chronic illnesses navigating health care and more
- PlanetThrive.com -- a community promoting healthy lifestyles, particularly fighting against environmental toxins
Wishing you a healthy day,
