Art that reduces Stigma, Heals our souls, and gives us Hope

William Stoehr paints with passion and purpose because for him, it’s personal. Bill lost his sister to the disease of addiction, and watching her struggle, he quickly learned the injustice of stigma associated with substance use disorder and mental health. His paintings portray both loss and hope all at the same time. He is able to humanize those struggling while also showing the resilience and hope that are universal. He just may be the link that helps someone decide there is hope after all. Can art really save lives? Bill is proving it is possible.
His work is exhibited internationally at universities, art centers, museums, and galleries. He is a frequent speaker and lecturer and his work has been featured and reviewed in local, national, and international media.

Change a Habit, Change your Life

I had the opportunity this week to speak with the creator and host of the Consequence of Habit podcast, JT Frank. JT is open about his story of alcohol misuse which led him to look at the consequences and decide to make a life change. We discussed his early struggles with ADHD and how alcohol seemed to calm his racing mind. At youlearnyouturn podcast, we love hearing stories of lives turned around that result in service through transparency and honesty, which actively helps our mission of crushing the stigma surrounding substance misuse and mental health.
Thank you, JT for spreading hope and practical ways of living through your podcast and guests that have taken a consequence of a habit and used it as fuel for change.

Chris Marshall is changing the way we connect with his popular alcohol-free Bar

Chris Marshall’s mother told him she had $10,000 put aside for his funeral. Her only ultimatum? He was not allowed to die in her house. You see, Chris had struggled with anxiety and depression and used alcohol to cope. He could no longer quit on his own, so his mother, exhausted from years of trying to save him, told him it was treatment or go die somewhere else. Fast forward to today where Chris is the owner of the successful alcohol-free bar, Sans Bar, is thriving in his recovery and has a family of his own. Hear how he turned his life around and continues to help others daily by enabling connection with his bar and many other activities that bring people together. My favorite quote from our time together was “nothing grows in isolation.” This episode gave me hope that the tide is turning and that social events will revolve less around alcohol and more about connection.
