Poetry for Personal Power provides:

  • health care messaging: community prevention info and paid gigs for sponsored artists

  • peer support: 70% hospital reduction

  • artist entreprneur development

  • health care advocacy and research: statewide mental health and substance use recovery networks

What helps you through adversity? We are now in our seventh year with over 150 events per year, 75 sponsored artists and advocates in 7 regions, and research and peer support programs in full pilot trial modes. We are building a national replication process to share health care messaging, promote resilience in nonprofits, and increase the number of peer support programs. We are becoming an evidence based resilience messaging campaign with sponsored artists.
