Overcoming great challenges is at the heart of these inspiring patient stories

Nexus Champions are individuals who have defeated the odds, overcome many obstacles, and reached their goals. Nominated by staff, these individuals have inspiring patient stories, and are celebrated by having their stories told here and on posters displayed throughout Nexus facilities. We’re proud to have helped these individuals on their journey — because we’re all about mending minds.
