Mood Lifters saved my life!
I signed up for Mood Lifters after I had experienced multiple traumatic events and had unsuccessfully kept myself from “swirling the toilet bowl” of depression….I went from “swirling the toilet bowl” to “standing on a hill.”
I am proud of the work I put into Mood Lifters; however, I am more proud that I did not give up on myself and I invested in my life.

What is Mood Lifters?
Mood Lifters is an innovative program that was developed by researchers at the University of Michigan.The Mood Lifters program brings together small groups to discuss and implement strategies to improve their mental health and overall well-being. Our goal is to help people live the life they’ve always wanted: one with deep meaning, less anxiety and depression, more joy and contentment, and better relationships.
Mood Lifters is not therapy. It is a mental wellness program led by people who benefited from their past participation. It was designed to help everyone—from people who are experiencing significant anxiety and depression, to those who simply want to learn new strategies to help them thrive.
