Its a venue that will allow us to talk about the challenges we face, the obstacles we have to over come. . The stigma in society . How to to help our family members and most importantly how to take care of our selves . I came away feeling empowered and knowing without a doubt their is strength in numbers . Our group appears to be ready to embark on this journey learning sharing and supporting one another. Nina and Alan McDaniels our facilitators are a blessing to the Mental Health field and the world.

Already we are into 2014 and as it should life goes on. I met a awesome young lady name Renee. She spoke at Penn State Berks campus . She shared with the audience the ups and downs of her struggle with Mental Illness. She was very inspiring and appear to have put her demons to rest. She is a recording artist and shared some of her songs with us . Her voice is a sultry and unique. the one thing that she said that stuck with me is that information plus application equals transformation. What a awesome concept . A movie is being made of her life. I look forward to its debut. Bearcat is the name she records under. I am so happy That I had the opportunity to spend time with her before her presentation.
