The Surviving Spirit Newsletter July 2018


The Surviving Spirit Newsletters

The Surviving Spirit newsletter has been going out for many years. The idea behind the newsletter is to share news, resources and helpful information that could help any and all who have been impacted by the concerns of trauma, abuse or mental health.

A major point of the newsletter has always been to focus on those who have been affected by these health issues, and yet they are doing incredible things with their creativity or advocacy in helping others. These folks and organizations are what we like to think of as the Unsung Heroes of Life. And their respective endeavors and accomplishments should be shared with others — their example of overcoming adversity is a great way to offer hope, healing and help to others.

What started with a mailing list of several hundred has grown into a list of several thousand. We are fortunate that other organizations and individuals share the newsletter with their friends and colleagues. The newsletter reaches people all over the US, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Switzerland, many parts of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Kenya, Ghana, Israel, Jamaica, South Africa, Cameroon, Puerto Rico, Iceland and Thailand.

If you would like to be on the mailing list, please write to me @ or

Thank you & take care, Michael Skinner
