With the advent of more effective medications in the mid-nineties, my broken brain was finally able to heal from 15 years of psychosis and instability.
I learned that while the medications restored the natural functions of my brain, it was up to me to heal my life. I was determined to have a healthy life that was meaningful and rich with hope. I want all consumers to have the life that I now experience. I want all family members to have the hope that their loved one can become the person that they were meant to be.
With this desire as my mission, I have begun an advocacy focused enterprise that spreads my message of wellness, positive expectations, relationships and recovery through products that market the “EXPECT RECOVERY!” slogan.
I want to give back the support and understanding offered to me by my NAMI family (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and other friends and advocates.
My signature color is green to represent growth and prosperity.
I introduced these bracelets at the NAMI National Convention this year and was excited to see this green band of hope on so many wrists!
Together we will spread this vision of recovery and affect change within ourselves and the people who serve us.
