Hi, I'm Pat Deegan.

The CommonGround Program is a collection of tools supporting recovery and healing after a diagnosis of mental illness.

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.

We provide solutions for people in recovery, peer supporters, MH professionals and organizations.

Through a series of Guides and inspirational videos, the CommonGround Program will support your journey of recovery and self-discovery.

I will live my life, not my diagnosis
