WELCOME TO PROMISE RESOURCE NETWORK!
Promise Resource Network, Inc. was started in 2006 in Charlotte, NC as Mecklenburg's PROMISE. PRN is a peer-run organization that employs people in recovery to partner with colleagues, families, peers, clinicians, organizations, governments, systems and communities to advance recovery from emotional distress, mental health and substance use challenges. We do this through a variety of initiatives that are aimed at creating opportunities for individual and familial recovery, developing a recovery-oriented behavioral health system in which recovery is valued, expected, supported and funded, and expanding the network of recovery champions through training, consultation and technical assistance for clinicians and organizations as they build their recovery knowledge, skills and tools. The PRN team, through our own lived recovery experience, combined with our professional and educational accomplishments, continues to demonstrate that recovery is not only possible, but probable.
A Note of Gratitude
PRN has been able to expand our reach in our local community due to the support of Mecklenburg County's Behavioral Health Division. From PRN's inception, Mecklenburg County has been a recovery champion, supporting the development of a peer-run organization when it was incredibly unpopular to do so. Mecklenburg County has served as a leader, demonstrating that recovery-based supports are crucial to a healthy community and that peer-run organizations are valued and effective. It is with much gratitude that we share our appreciation of the "risk" they took to be the first to fund a peer-run agency in NC. Thank you doesn't even begin to express our gratitude ----- the PRN team
