I have gained so much knowledge since the death of my son Dan and continue to learn more every day. I believe that he is teaching and guiding me from the other side and I would like to share this information with you. I conduct presentations for mental health facilities, mental health workers, schools, and parents. I speak about my families struggle with the traditional mental health system and how we can do better with a different approach from the "medical model". I speak about the Hearing Voice Network (an international network of support groups that originated and has been global for almost 30 years. DMHAS has recruited trainers to Connecticut a little over a year ago). You can find more information about the Hearing Voice Network if you go to "finding help" on my website. I speak about how we can become engaged with a better understanding of what may be happening to others in mental pain, not what is wrong with them. These presentations have been received with excitement, relief and an understanding that we actually can do better if we change our approach with our patients, our clients, our students and our loved ones.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like me to come speak in your town.
