How it started:
SC SHARE began in 1985 with a small group of people who had the hope that they could make a difference in the lives of people who lived with mental illness, substance use disorder and/or co-occurring disorder. These innovators formed the organization we call SC SHARE and began self help support groups across the state. Over 60 groups have come and gone in our history. As needs and trends changed, some self-help support group members wanted more direction and guidance for living a life of recovery. In an effort to adapt to the needs of its members, SC SHARE developed a program called Recovery for Life: Helping Others Help Themselves.
Mental Health America (MHA) – founded in 1909 – is the nation's leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of all Americans. Our work is driven by our commitment to promote mental health as a critical part of overall wellness, including prevention services for all, early identification and intervention for those at risk, integrated care, services, and supports for those who need it, with recovery as the goal. Much of our current work is guided by the Before Stage 4 (B4Stage4) philosophy – that mental health conditions should be treated long before they reach the most critical points in the disease process.
