Community Hero: Sharlisa Davis helping people in recovery
MOSCOW, ID —
Sharlisa Davis moved to Moscow four years ago. She herself has a diagnosis and was looking for an outreach group when she realized there weren’t any in the area. This prompted her to start WRAP, The Wellness Recovery Action Plan.
From there we became a part of NAMI, National Alliance of Mental Illness. She serves on the both the Idaho and Washington State board for NAMI.
Her most recent project is assisting with the Latah Alliance House. They provide housing and support for those that struggle with mental illness.
She continues to do all of these things to make her daughter proud. Her daughter was a student at Washington State University who took her own life at age 20, about three years ago.
After this loss she made her mission to go out there and help at least one person in hopes of stopping the cycle. Sharlisa shares her story when she goes to the capitol to lobby for more funding.
