A Beacon of Hope, Bringing Fresh Ideas and Perspective to Mental Health Recovery.
Mary Jadwisiak has been speaking out on behalf of people with mental illness for nearly 20 years. In 2003, she decided to connect her love of speaking and training with the knowledge and skills she learned from her personal recovery journey and her professional system advocacy work. What a winning combination!
Since then, she hasn’t looked back. Mary has worked with international corporations including Nintendo America and LivingWorks Education, Inc., as well as state governments including the Office of the Governor of the State of Washington and the Hawaii Department of Health.
With a wealth of expertise, insight and experience, she has helped transform the way mental health is viewed and treated in many counties and private agencies throughout Oregon, Washington, California and Nevada. Throughout it all, Mary’s keen understanding into what is necessary for personal transformation or system transformation— brings hope and recovery. She infuses hope into everything she does and she’ll teach you how to do it, too.
Mary is regularly sought out by print and broadcast news outlets for her expertise in mental health recovery and suicide prevention. As the Spokesperson for Hope, she has taken on the responsibility to educate, inform, entertain and inspire others so they too, can understand that recover is possible.
With Mary, it IS personal.
Mary understands the power of hope because her life has been transformed by it. Her personal story of recovery from PTSD, addiction, poverty and isolation is woven though out each keynote, workshop or consultation that she provides.
Mary’s belief in the power of recovery is her driving force. Whether she is working with state administrators or worried parents, her extensive background and well-honed skills are applied to the problem at hand. The result is Hope – the critical component recovery. Hope that recovery can be a part of the entire health care system. Hope that each life touched by mental illness can be transformed.
