It's OK not to feel OK.
You’re still you - and you still have the power to choose wellness.
There are many paths to get there.
We're glad you're here
Michigan Minds Empowered is a community dedicated to building strength, finding hope and establishing meaning on our journey to wellness.
We believe that every person facing a mental health challenge can access inner strength and wellbeing, so we created a space where we could do just that – connect, learn and draw inspiration from one another.
We understand the power of asking for help because it has changed our own lives. But we also understand that no one journey looks the same.
We’re here to help you find a path to wellness that works for you.
If you've been...
Seeing or hearing things that you aren’t sure are real
Having sudden trouble focusing or understanding what others are saying
Withdrawing from those around you and the things that you once enjoyed
Or otherwise not feeling quite like yourself…
Let us help you figure out the best plan of action to get back to living your best life.

How to find the right mental health support for you
Who we are + how to get involved
Michigan Minds Empowered is a reflection of the voices of participants from local youth mental health treatment programs who have helped to start and grow this community.
We teamed up with Strong 365, a national psychosis support community, to spread the word that asking for help is a sign of strength and ensure that everyone has access to high quality mental health care.

“Despite living with a mental health condition, we can still lead regular, fulfilling lives and do the things we want to do. Getting help early can make a big difference.”
-Collin, Michigan program participant
“The treatment program gave me a plan. My favorite part was when I first met with the nurse practitioner and she let me in on my own treatment.”
