Get Well Steve!

~Steve_roundOur executive director Steve Harrington is currently on medical leave for an unknown period of time following two strokes that affected his vision and parts of his memory, but have left his genuine personality and sense of humor fully intact.

As we all know, hope is essential to recovery. And there is much hope for for Steve to make a full recovery.

As the science of neuroplasticity has shown, the brain’s ability to recover following a stroke or brain injury is greatly affected by attitude, self-determination, and support. Support in the form of positive energy, prayers, well wishes, and random acts of kindness (on behalf of Steve) from the entire iNAPS community can make a big difference.

If Steve has touched your life in some way, please let him know by leaving a message for him in the Comment field (below). Your support will be considered in the nomination for Steve as Peer Specialist of the Year for the National Council Awards of Excellence!

Here are some of the messages that were created and sent to Steve and Zack (his partner) during the recent iNAPS National Peer Supporter conference in San Antonio, Texas.

Get-Well-Card-2

Get-Well-Card-3

Get-Well-Card-4

We will share well wishes for Steve that you leave in the comment field below with him and his partner Zack… or you can send cards and letters to Steve and Zack directly:

Your work has enriched the lives of so many people and you are both cherished deeply by so many in our community. Positive hopes for rest and healing (for both of you) and time to reflect upon and embrace the things that matter most in life. You both deserve the very best. ~Rita, Rick and Jon

  2. Steve, you have inspired me to speak out about my own recovery. You have set the bar for all of us in recovery to aspire for more than we ever thought was possible. You prove that recovery is more than just possible, but it is probable for all. You are an inspiration to many and I hope that I will be able to inspire others as much as you have inspired me. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and Zack! I think you both for all you do! Get well soon!

  3. Steve, I don’t think anyone could match your hard work and dedication, which have supported our mission these many years. I am so pleased to be a part of this wonderful organization. Healing beams to you both.

  20. Hi Steve, we met at the conference in Philadelphia in 2012. I pestered you with questions and my thoughts, challenged some things and your example of listening has stayed with me. Three years later I still practice what I saw coming from you for everyone.
    A slow and steady space of healing, strength, and rest is what I will ask for you,

Until then my friend continue to color, brighten and flourish.

  22. Steve, please know that I shall pray for you and Zack & send positive thoughts your way. Relax and let others care for you for a while as you have cared for all of us.

So we wish you the best, and will continue to pay it forward and be a blessing to other folks in recovery.

  30. Hello Steve and Zach,
    My best wishes to Steve and unfortunately I know what Zach is going through. In February of this year, my other half and my love Maureen was sadly diagnosed with a brain aneurysm which she died from on June 12th. Hoping through the help from whatever resources you both have that you will live a long and successful life together as one. Steve, your biggest contribution to me as that you publish my articles in the Newsletter where I can express through words my thoughts and deep feelings. Thanks and keep that positive attitude.

  45. You and Zack are in my prayers I thank you for all the inspirations, believing and listening to me. Inspiring me to speak and the encouragement to become a Certified Peer Support Specialist because of you I have taken my lived experience to help others. I thank God for your Depression book which described me even when you did not know me. I became the live person from your book.

    Truly you are an inspiration and I believe you are determined to recover for the best. We love you and miss you here at Recovery Academy. Thanks for everything including keeping people with lived experience encouraged and happy.
    We love you and will keep your bags full with love and hope.

  47. Steve,
    I have consulted you over and over again, and miss you very much. I wish you a strong recovery and the strength to continue making the radical changes in the world you have already accomplished!
    Irene Harris

  48. I wish you a speedy and full recovery. Please know how impactful you and your work has been on the peer community.

  49. Dear Steve,
    I am pleased to hear that you are courageously pursuing recovery again. I realize its a bit different this time around but perseverance is still at play in this situation.
    I would like to ask you for your guidance and advice on gaining employment. I have been out of work for almost 6 years now and would be ecstatic to reenter the peer specialist workforce again. Please, if you are at all able, contact me by email at cynzacc@Gmail.com or by phone at 615-243-2641. I will at that time give you more detailed information. This field means a great deal to me as does instilling hope in the lives of individuals battling mental illness.
    Thanks and may you continue to grow stronger in your recovery each and every day.

  50. Steve you have led the field forward in tremendously important ways – your national practice guidelines have made it easier for managed care entities to pay for peer support. Your work on countless national committees and workgroups have ensured the peer profession has had an important, well reasoned voice as healthcare goes through critical changes. You have listened carefully and used your amazing intellect to bring consensus to the field. I can not overstate how important your work is and has been.

  51. Steve- I truly appreciate your guidance and ability to allow me to “bounce” things off of you. In Wisconsin, we have received support and encouragement that has helped us to develop a stronger peer network and peer certification. You always are friendly, encouraging, patient and ready to roll up your sleeves to help. The love of Zack, your friends, family and colleagues will encourage you as you recover from this new challenge! Get better soon as I have lots of new things to bounce off of you! Laleña Lampe

  52. May everyone’s hopes and blessings warmly embrace and heal your kind heart and soul. Thank you for all that do and have done in promoting peer support, helping people like me heal and experience joy, and providing the means and resources for me to help others in their recovery journey.

  53. Dear Steve,
    You are our champion! You have very generously shared of yourself and your work with peer specialists for as long as I have worked in the field.
    Thank you always for your dedication and support!
    I hope you feel better soon!
    Meghan Caughey

  54. Steve, you have changed the lives of SO MANY PEOPLE. I am sending you so much healing, positive energy, well wishes, and praying for you, Zack, and the many communities that you have provided so much powerful support to. Your strength continues to inspire peers everywhere.

  56. Your name is to me but a prominent noun; I don’t know all of whom you are and all that you’ve done. I know that for me to be a working (albeit, volunteer) certified peer recovery support specialist, the most significant experience of my life, that you are one of those who have laid the groundwork for the profession. Please internalize my immense gratitude as light to your comfort and healing. We journey together in our recovery.

  57. Steve you have made a positive tremendous impact on the lives of so many. May you return to excellent health and vitality soon. Sending warm thoughts of healing, comfort and peace to both you and Zack.

  58. Steve, why do we humans so often wait to say “thank you” until someone experiences a life-threatening challenge? I had the opportunity to reflect this week on that long-ago meeting in Philadelphia when a roomful of us talked of forming the Peer Specialist Alliance of America. Lots of powerful people – and powerful egos! – in the room, and yet you were the only one who said “let’s do it” and moved to create an organization that aims to address much of what we discussed that day. You’ve been in it for the long haul, and your commitment and dedication have led to so much. We owe you an incredible debt of gratitude. Here’s to the next 10 years and more, promoting the life-saving value of peer support and advancing that work in the U.S. and throughout the world!

  59. Steve I hope the new year brings healing and contentment. Thanks for all you do on behalf of recovery. It’s your turn. Ray Bridge National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery

  60. Hey Steve,
    I haven’t forgotten. I know I still owe you a visit. When I lived in Indiana the trip seemed easy. Now I am in Alaska, so I will have to work on a plan to get to your place.
    You are in a special place in my heart. You have inspired me to be the best I can to help others.
    Get well soon.
    Hey Zack,
    I hope you are well. I haven’t forgotten the couple of times we met. When I worked for the State of Indiana, we framed your art work. We put it up all over the offices of the Division of Mental Health and Addiction. I hope it is still there. Everyone loved your inspirational messages.
    Your Friend,
    Bruce Van Dusen

  61. Hey Steve,

    Your work in developing Peer Support as a field of work has been inspirational to me personally and to peers around the country (and the world!). iNAPS is a well recognized as being one of the leading organizations for peer supporters, and we all owe you dearly for your efforts. This is a small token of appreciation for the fine work you have done–allowing others to grow their skillsets and add value to the services they provide.

  62. Hi Steve,
    Hope your ongoing recovery episode is bringing you around again soon. I miss the rubber chicken. Seriously, though your pressing and persistence in the field of Peer Specialist endeavors and support to this cause has been more than inspiration, it has been phenomenal! You have set a stage for the Peers in this world that is going to endure and be a living legacy. Thanks as well for the new International Peers Recognition Day, 15 October. It is a great time to set it at the peak of Fall Colors. Wishing you well soon and I’ll be rooting for you if I do not get to come to the National Council Conference in Las Vegas. Play a slot for me. Blessings in Abundance!

  63. Steve, We met years ago in Philadelphia and that simple conversation had a huge impact on my life and career as a Peer Specialist and now as a Peer Supervisor. Pease get well soon and my prayers to you and your family.

  64. We become experts in Recovery with the coaching of the Masters like you.

  65. dear Steve. I hope you recover. We love you and you are in my heart. You have contributed so greatly. I support your being designated as the National Council for Behavioral Health’s peer specialist of the year. You organized iNAPS, set up a process for establishing ethical guidelines, and have been a leader in influencing national policy through the recovery to practice program.

  66. Steve….I developed a Peer provider / peer services program @ ColumbiaCare Services in Oregon in 2010. We met @ Alternatives 2012 in Oregon and not only was/is the work you and iNAPS are doing hugely important, you took the time to speak to me on the phone, offering resources and assistance. This is still personally rewarding, helpful and affirming. ColumbiaCare now has 25 Peer providers ( called Peer QMHA) and we are looking to expand the Peer QMHA roles…… Thank you Steve, you are a valued pioneer in mental health Peer provider recovery work…..hoping for healing for you ( and family) and looking forward to your return…mark fisher Peer Services Program Coordinator ColumbiaCare services

  67. Steve—The field simply can’t thank you enough for your dogged dedication to peers in the workforce. YOu definitely deserve to win this award. Good luck.

  68. Hi Steve,
    PART TWO: See September 3rd
    Based on what I personally know about you, I think you are a tremendous individual and with your courage you will get through your illness.

  69. Hello Steve – Know that you are loved, appreciated and valued. You’ve heard the old saying, “having influence is not about elevating self, but about lifting others!” You have lifted the spirits and hopes of countless peers across the nation and abroad through your development and leadership of iNAPS. I am always touched by your willingness to answer my phone calls and provide me that individual guidance, pointing me in the right direction with my Peer Support Specialist trainings, whenever called upon to do so. I was inspired by your trips to North Carolina to provide leadership and support at Peer sponsored events here which left a spirit of empowerment to those who had the pleasure of listening to your presentations and chatting with you one on one. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and pray for you to have a miraculous healing and speedy recovery!

  70. Hi Steve. Just sending you a note of Christmas cheer at this wonderful time of the year. Saying a prayer for your recovery from your strokes. I know that a guy who pulls out all the stops to help others recover including rubber chickens, rutabagas and whatever else they can find, can certainly recover from strokes. So as you once said, “Ready Set Do It!” Get well and Merry Christmas.
    All the best, Dan O’Brien-Mazza

  71. Steve , tou were beautify when I first met you in Denver, still beautiful in Reno, and until today. I am so thankful the good Lord sent you to make me a better person. Love land hugs. Barbara

  74. Dear Steve,
    Your foresight in recognizing the need for an organization to support the emerging peer specialists workforce was amazing.

  75. Dear Steve,
    Get well soon! Thanks for making sure that I’m able to be a part of INAPS thought I can’t afford the dues. It means so much to me to keep up with what is going on with other peer support specialist are doing in the country. You do so much and it means a lot to me. Wishing you and Zach and very Happy Holidays!!!

  76. Dear Steve

    Get well soon you have done a lot and we hope you may get well so you may continue on giving and informing us peer specialist.

  77. You have been an ongoing inspiration to me and many that I know. you have laid the foundation on which we can now walk. Thank You for all you have done.

  78. Steve thank you for taking on the monumental task of creating INAPS. It has had such an important impact on so many of us. Please take good care of yourself because you are a very special person.

  79. Get well soon Steve. You have been a great example for others and a huge part of the Peer Movement for all peers. Your work will go on and continue to affect so many lives via working peers. I met you in Chicago a few years back and have seen you numerous times. You were always “Rock Steady” and a bundle of energy. I wish for you a complete recovery.

  80. Missing your big hearted smile, your enthusiasm for living… your stories!
    So grateful for all you do and have done… “peer peeps” to the bone!
    My hunch is that many of them have come true… and I wish 🌠 you any remaining — heart’s dreams! Love to you and Zack!, Noelle

  81. I first heard Steve speak at a PACT team conference in Grand Rapids Michigan in the mid 2000’s. I was just starting my work as a peer specialist in Virginia. I was really impressed to see a peer addressing a conference room full of mostly professionals with such confidence and passion. Later after INAPS released the peer worker standards I emailed a question about them and Steve promptly emailed me with the answer to my question and some kind encouraging words. That meant a lot to me. Steve, may your recovery continue in all its aspects.

  82. Hi Steve, I wish you all the best in your recovery! You have been an inspirational leader and champion for peer providers and I hope you will be back soon!

  83. Hi Steve,

    If your helping to others helps you to, then I have possibly a problem you could help me with…

    As you probably do not know I have 3 cat companions at home. Two of the 3 are litter-mate sister siblings, and they fight each other just like human sisters. About a month and a half ago my neighbor approached me stating he was taking his feline to “the POUND” and would I like to adopt it possibly? I bit on the hook too soon. This 3rd cat is ‘a TOM’ and neutered. He has beautiful fluffy as cotton tabby-marked fur, and for the bad part nasty as hell fleas came with him sweetly concealed.

    My problem is FLEA WARS 2016.

    I’ve done spray
    I’ve done powder
    I’ve done one spot dope
    I’ve done shampoo
    I’ve done lemon water
    I’ve done apple cider vinegar
    I’ve done veterinarian prescription medication
    I’ve done flea-away vitamins
    I’ve done power-wash (cat in taxi and me spraying cat with flexible shower head)

    Cats no longer eye me as if to say, “whatcha gonna do ’bout our fleas?”; no they’re still indicating that through all this they still have fleas! Cats are in stiches, I’ve got the itches, how can I rid myself of these “B” pests?

    Perhaps a professional exterminator is next, so after PCH brings me the ‘big bucks’, I’ll possibly give Terminex-man a ‘jingle’…

    If you’re not feeling like a laugh, I hope that it means your making incredible great strides with Stroke Survivor Recovery. I know we’ll see one another again soon.

    Have yourselves a Very Merry Christmas!

    Kyle D. Lloyd

  84. Steve you are an inspiration for me personally. I hope and trust that you will have be able to make a solid recovery, and then resume your role. God Bless you Steve, Brandon

  85. Steve and Zack I live in Guam and your dedication and support have made a big difference in my life all the way over here. I am eternally grateful..

I am a greater and better professional. Your love,support of me have me in tears. So because of what you’ve done for me. I pray that God breathes the breath of life in you one more time and send his healing angel to you now. I love you and Thank You soooo soooo much for EVERYTHING.

  89. Hi Steve, this is Jill Jendrzey in San Antonio, Texas. I just wanted to send some well wishes your way. I’ll never forget the first time you came down to Austin, Texas several years ago. It was a great experience to be part of your focus group as you gathered input about peer support. Our voice mattered! I’m now been training CPS’s in Texas for over two and and am so incredibly humbled by the individuals who paved the path for me. I love my work and my journey. Thank you for being one of many who help pave that path. Two weeks ago Rita led us in an amazing RTP Next Steps training. Truly and incredible week. I can’t wait to see this work spread accrues the world. Wishing you wellness and peer support from Texas. 🙂

  90. Steve, I’m sending my warmest wishes for a full recovery and a little something to speed along the process…
