Michelle Black

Peer Navigator and Facilitator for the Wellness Network

Michelle Black has learned to live a full and meaningful life even with a Bipolar diagnosis.  Now she is giving back …

She maintains Peer Roles such as: Peer Navigator for the Wellness Network, a member of the Recovery College Steering Committee and a Facilitator for the following courses:  Wellness Recovery Action Plan® (WRAP®), Mental Wellness Recovery Group (MWRG) and Do What You Love and Love What You Do.

Michelle has a love for being a guitar and mandolin instructor and has sometimes used her talents when facilitating.

She has over 10 years of being a Bipolar Advocate by presenting her wellness journey of recovery.  By learning and growing from lived experiences with Bipolar, she has developed a strong sense of resiliency.

Michelle has learned that she is more than her diagnosis, she is a daughter, sister, spouse, mother and auntie.  She is a community member, employee, advocate, friend, and a peer with lived experience of recovery. She is a singer and song writer, musician, artist, poet and most recently an author.

She now likes to say … “I may have Bipolar, but it doesn’t have me!”  She also believes it stands for Beautiful Person.
