Hear why “Jane” credits Women In Transitions’ (WIT’s) environment of empowerment as essential to her recovery from severe mental illness.
Jane first came to WIT’s Halfway House after being displaced by a fire in the CBRF (community-based residential facility) where she had been living. She quickly acclimated to the WIT environment and began to excel in her cooking and managing her medication. Jane learned to knit too, seeing it as a significant accomplishment.
Eventually Jane moved to WIT’s Corner House (apartment building) and for three months her mental health continued to improve. Able to now live on her own, Jane moved into a low-income subsidized apartment.
In just six short months, Jane moved through the tiered programs offered by WIT—and she values the empowerment that led to her improved mental health.
