One of the tracks in the 2014 ACMHA Summit addressed the critical roles that consumers play in health care, both as peer supporters and as managers of their own health. That group developed the idea of producing short videos on two topics—peer support and health activation. In this video Debbie and Ashley, mother and daughter, describe the family in which Ashley grew up and the mental health condition Ashley developed as a teen. Through her own growth in personal health literacy, Ashley was able to develop an understanding of the triggers for her own illness. This permitted her to become a health activated person, able to prevent episodes of depression even when confronted with the very untimely death of her young husband.
