Welcome!

This blog is for everyone.  It is written from personal perspective and experience and directed to mental health consumers, siblings, parents, friends and other family members of those with childhood mental illness.  It is also written to educate all those who come into contact with those we love that suffer at the hands of any mental illness.  This life is not for the faint of heart.

In this blog, I hope to help others advocate for themselves by providing resources, answering questions and providing perspectives to a very large and complicated set of issues.  To anyone who reads this, please remember that I am not a medical doctor, a psychologist or psychiatrist.  However, that in no way means I’m not an expert in a sense.  I have filled my life with countless experiences, reading (medical journals, articles, books and studies) and advocated for my own family through several hardships.  I hope to pass on a little of my “expertise” so that others can benefit from what I have learned, hard won as it has been.  

One thing I can say for sure is that WE are strong, together.  All parents, caregivers, guardians, must stand together to advance the cause of advocacy for the mentally ill. 

Namaste.

Jenifer
