I am so delighted to be invited to speak at a local book club about my book and the topic of bipolar disorder. Bringing mental illness out of the shadows and being to speak openly about it is an honor and privilege. Small events can help make big changes in attitude, one individual at a time!


Yesterday I spent the entire day training to be a presenter for NAMI’s Parents & Teachers as Allies Program. It was informative and exciting to be included as a part of this team. I met a great group of people: parents, professionals and consumers who are passionate about helping others identify early symptoms of MI. The goal is to bring understanding, compassion, earlier identification and treatment to those suffering from MI, a brain disease. NAMI delivers the message free of charge so parents, teachers and entire communities can benefit and help children with mental health issues.Go NAMI!!!
