Hi, I'm Pat Deegan.
I created the CommonGround Program to support people's recovery and help peers and providers re-ignite their passion for the work they've been called to do.
The CommonGround Program is a collection of tools supporting recovery and healing after a diagnosis of mental illness.
We provide solutions for people in recovery, peer supporters, MH professionals and organizations.
Transform hearts, minds and services with the Hearing Distressing Voices Simulation or the full CommonGround Software.
People can recover, and your staff can be a key to their success. Gain in-depth expertise with Certified Personal Medicine Coaching, or advanced skill sets with Academy.
Get hands on tools with our work-book style Guides, free poster & papers and movies.
