"DON'T BE ASHAMED
OF YOUR STORY. IT WILL
Through a variety of dedicated programs, we strive to change the image that surrounds mental health by building a community of support for members and their families to grow and heal.
The guardian phoenix symbolizes strength, resilience, and transformation. It is a reminder that beauty can come out of ashes. The phoenix's rebirth from its own ashes, has caused it to become a symbol of immortality. Even today, a person who makes a comeback after suffering a great defeat is called a "phoenix."
Whatever portions of your life need assistance, the power of the Phoenix can rise to help with the cure.
The plant is able to put down roots almost anywhere, and it's near impossible to destroy. It's a survivor. The dandelion has a surprising amount of different meanings, from healing from emotional pain and physical injury alike, to intelligence, surviving through all challenges and difficulties, long lasting happiness and youthful joy, as well as getting your wish fulfilled. The dandelion is also a sun symbol, conveying the warmth and power of the rising sun.
Since the dandelion can thrive in difficult conditions, it is no wonder that people say the flower symbolizes the ability to rise above life's challenges.
