2017 NAMI Michigan Honors

We are proud to announce that
MI Healthy Mind was nominated and recognized as A Hero of Mental Health!

It’s Time To Remove The Stigma: Let’s Talk About It!

MI Healthy Mind is a 30-minute TV talk show with a focus on all things Health and Wellness, particularly in the mental health and behavioral sectors. Seasoned hosts, Elizabeth Atkins and Michael Hunter explore a vast range of subjects (addiction,

depression, bipolar, autism etc) with valuable insights and lively conversation from popular entertainers, experts, athletes, and other newsmakers. But most important, MI Healthy Mind showcases real people, “the heroes” who have

overcome and triumphed over their mental health issues. In the wake of incredible loss, or adversity, these people found a way to turn personal tragedy into hope.

“All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming.” — Helen Keller

This week, MI Healthy Mind explores the Opioid Abuse Epidemic…right in our own backyards.

We meet Andrew Brown, someone who’s been there and done all that.

Andrew was hopelessly addicted to opiates — painkillers. Over time, what started with, what he considered, “less hazardous” prescription painkillers had suddenly progressed into daily heroin use.

It is not unusual for someone who has experienced a traumatic event, especially a young person, to turn to opioids for relief or escape, to “self-medicate”, and to unintentionally get hooked on these powerful drugs. Such is the story of Andrew, whose mother died when he was only 14 years old. Drugs seemed to be his only solution to the real problem: dealing with his grief.

These addictions can happen to ANYONE—crossing all socio-economic lines. Catastrophic addictions can begin innocently and legitimately enough, often even through the prescription of necessary and appropriate pain medications by physicians, which is very common practice.

But recovery is a process, and Andrew got into treatment. Today, he is proud to state that he’s in long-term recovery.
Andrew’s journey ultimately lead to his training as a Peer Recovery Coach, and helping others achieve their own victory to live rewarding lives.

Watch MI Healthy Mind Sunday and learn more about this extraordinary young man.
