January 2017 Podcast- STAR002: Restorying and Raising Critical Consciousness through Peer Support


Our second STAR Center podcast episode 002 is a chance to take a step back and share a little more about who we are, why we are doing this show in the first place and how it relates to what we do at the STAR Center.

The focus of this podcast is supporting people to connect with their lived experience and the power of our own stories, embrace leadership opportunities and build community.

Chacku Mathai tells a little more about his personal story, his first experiences with peer support at the age of 15 which helped him and his family deal with his mental health and substance use challenges.

The title concept of Restorying is drawn from the seminal work of Shery Mead and the Intentional Peer Support approach.
