The Verrazano Foundation, a New York State not-for-profit corporation, is committed to combating stigma and discrimination against persons living with mental illness by providing opportunities for people in recovery, individually and collectively, to make positive, visible contributions to the community. Current initiatives include an interactive website, a series of community forums called the Recovery Road Show, and the Arts of Recovery. All these initiatives simultaneously create opportunities for people in recovery to interact productively with the broader community while demonstrating the valuable contributions they can make to society.
