About Us

We envision a world where all women in or seeking recovery are celebrated, supported, and deemed essential to healthy communities.

Our mission is to redefine recovery, inspire hope, reduce stigma and empower women in or seeking recovery from life challenges including mental health issues, trauma and substance use, to increase their recovery capital, heal themselves and help other women to do the same.

Who We Are

SHE RECOVERS® Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity and a global grassroots movement serving more than 325,000 women and non-binary individuals in or seeking recovery from life challenges including trauma, substance use, grief and loss, eating disorders, burnout and moral injury, love addiction and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. We are all recovering from something—no one should have to recover alone. The organization connects women through its virtual offerings and in-person community networks, provides resources and support to help women develop their own holistic recovery patchworks, and empowers them to thrive, share their experience, and celebrate success. All efforts are designed to redefine recovery, end stigma and shame, and help more women heal.

2023 Focus

A focus on research, recovery advocacy through storytelling, and supporting identity-based groups enables the organization to establish a more robust evidence base related to the efficacy of non-traditional recovery pathways.
