About Shannon Cutts

Me. Pearl.

Hi. I’m Shannon. πŸ™‚

I’m thrilled to be here blogging for Psych Central about mentoring and recovery.

Over the 10 years I have been part of the Psych Central family, I have learned SO much about what mentoring is, how it works, and most of all, where mentors can be found.

For nearly a decade, I worked with eating disorders mentoring as a mentor, author and founder of MentorCONNECT, the first global online nonprofit eating disorders mentoring community.

Today, my focus has shifted to the greater connections we can make between people, animals, nature and the planet. Because of this work, I have happy news to share.

As it turns out, mentors areΒ everywhere!

For example, my cockatiel, Pearl, my redfoot tortoise, Malti, and my rescued 3-toed box turtle, Bruce, are hugely inspirational mentors in my life.

Who is in your inner mentoring circle? Who always has your back? Who can you trust with your heart, your spirit, your fears, your dreams?

We are all in this together – people, plants, animals, the planet. And all we need to do to receive the support we need and find ways to offer our support as well is to remember this.

On that note, here is an open invitation to join our greater flock here and elsewhere – we’d love to have you.
