We rolled into Charlottesville and literally dropped-in on this wonderful drop-in center. We told them we are consumers hoping one day to open a place of our own, and they gave us some great coffee and talked about how they work to help people successfully leave psychiatric hospitals like Western State located in Staunton, Virginia. For me, On Our Own is all about consumers helping other consumers find sanctuary, health, vitality, and happiness. And they have a great fashion sense, as shown in this picture! --Marc
