Recovery Incorporated of KY d/b/a Uplift Mental Health Support
Recovery was founded in 1937 by the late Dr. Abraham A. Low. He was a nationally esteemed psychiatrist in Chicago. He was the associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Illinois Medical School.
In 1950, Dr. Low appointed the late Cleo Dieruf to establish a Recovery branch in Louisville. The Louisville branch started with patients referred by Louisville psychiatrists.
In 2020, Recovery changed its name to Uplift Mental Health Support to better clarify our mission.
Members are sometimes referred by doctors or hear of Uplift from friends already in the group. The most significant difference between Uplift and regular group therapy is in the structure of the meetings, which prevents time being wasted in what Dr. Low calls the “complaint hobby.” Significant gains in mood and symptom reduction are often seen in as little as three meetings.
Minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, people can learn to stop panics. Through the help of Uplift, people learn to practice “will training.” By making timely and appropriate choices, with patience, they learn how to gain relief from or to stop the uncontrolled rampage of their own nervous systems.
Uplift is free. It is not associated with any group, denomination, political organization or institution. The primary purpose of Uplift is to help members achieve and maintain good mental and emotional health.
