I just returned from a weekend conference for NAMI Washington State.

Between the inspiration of the conference and my present realizations I have decided that I should start a series for young adults (or anyone interested) on the path from initial diagnosis to empowerment. In these posts I hope to provide examples from my personal story along with tips and ideas for how you can achieve these goals. My upcoming posts will be:

Stayed tuned!

  1. So there I was, wondering WHO just returned from a weekend at the NAMI Washington State Conference. I wondered if I’d met this person and as I continued reading this post I thought hmmm… sounds like this person is going to have some great stuff to share, and so I clicked on that little star that says “Like”.

    I can hardly wait to read what you have to share!

    Hope your day is FABULOUS!!
