BECAUSE NO ONE GETS THROUGH LIFE ALONE
BECAUSE NO ONE GETS THROUGH LIFE ALONE
Barbara Brusack, Peer Networking Assistant
Barbara is a survivor and previous caretaker of her late husband who passed from cancer. After her significant loss, she took a position working for an agency that focused on serving the mental health population. For seven years she participated in facilitating self-help groups, socialization, and assisted with transportation and food service.

Barbara joined the HALI team working as a peer networking assistant. Barbara strives to empower others to find their strengths needed for healthy recovery. In her life outside of Hand Across Long Island, she continues to work on her own recovery and spends her time caring for precious six year old grandson who was diagnosed with autism, along with her current spouse who is battling cancer.

Barbara is a strong willed, organized and caring person who is dedicated to guiding others in both her personal life and as a significant member of the HALI team.

"HALI has been a life saving blessing. The people who work here, the participants, the groups, all are so life affirming. Here you are a person in recovery, who just happens to have an illness. A PERSON! HALI is the greatest place to be for anyone who is DEALING with mental health conditions and TRYING to better themselves. So I hope to see you here at HALI!"
