Morning Star Inc. is a non-profit mental health recovery center in Manhattan, Kansas that offers peer support services in a safe, trusting and healthy environment. Our mission is to empower people through mental health and substance use recovery to break through the barriers of stigma while decreasing isolation and hospitalizations.
In our opinion, the key to a fulfilling life is having three things: purpose, hope and connection. Morning Star provides these three things to our member and staff. Morning Star is a place for people with lived experience of mental illness to create amazing lives worth living. It is a place of growth, change and transformation. Many people with mental illness are isolated and some struggle terribly with self-stigma. Stigma is when someone sees you in a negative way just because of your mental illness. Self-stigma is when you have a negative view of yourself just because of your metal illness. At Morning Star, we fight both stigma and self-stigma. We battle shame. We know that people with mental illness are just as valuable as anyone is on the planet. Life can be great, even with a mental illness. Another aspect of our organization is that we are deeply involved with activism to make the mental health system more effective and humane. Together, we can work to become the best version of ourselves, and in the process, change the world.
