A Bit of Background
Welcome to LIFE ON LIFE TERMS! I'm Peter Stephen: Chief Executive Officer, LOLT originated while I was residing in a shelter in Queens, NY. A conversation with a friend of mine started about discussing how the phrase "Life On Life Terms" is used in an alcoholic rehabilitation program to help recovering alcoholics for support. I felt the name was was ambiguous, and can give people an opportunity to reflect on their lives.
In 2017 with the help of a group of individuals, on and off social media, we realized not everyone has adequate mental health insurance and/or may not be experiencing support as needed with their wellness. In the beginning of 2018 Life On Life Terms started a media production which broadcasts programs locally through New York and globally via the internet and presence on social media.
In 2019 we published www.lifeonlifeterms.com to include a Mental Wellness Hub with valuable resources and information for anybody to help them with their mental wellness needs. As I reflected on my social work studies one of the things that became apparent through discussion with team members, was assessing community mental wellness needs.
Life On Life Terms created our first liaison who began conducting an assessment of mental wellness needs through participation of local residents and community organizations, and that is where our story begins.
