Gina Calhoun

Gina Calhoun works for the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery. After 17 years of back-to-back institutionalization, Gina credits her journey forward in life to relationships that chose to focus on What's Strong Not What's Wrong and to meaningful employment. Gina often says, "I didn't get well and go to work. Work was my pathway toward wellness." Gina was the keynote speaker at the National Olmstead Policy Academy; the Center for Medicare and Medicaid’s All Staff Meeting and for the University of Tokyo’s Mental Health Convention. Gina won the Timothy J. Coakley National Behavioral Health Leadership Award. This award honors peer and family leaders in the behavioral health field whose work is characterized by the highest degree of integrity and a passion for creative approaches for improving the lives of persons living with mental illnesses, especially in the public sector. She was recently published in the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal (Volume 36, Number 3) and supported Mary Ellen's new book, WRAP for People with Developmental Distinctions.
