A project to provide funds for "I Still Believe" and the Breaking the Silence curriculum to NM students.

There is a vital need to provide children of all ages with the truth about mental illness, and I invite you to join me in this educational endeavor. I want to offer upper elementary, middle and high school students a compassionate lens through which to learn about mental illnesses. Your gift in any amount is gratefully welcomed, but a $50 donation will provide a classroom with "Breaking the Silence" (BTS) curriculum, lesson plans, games and posters that teach about mental illnesses. In addition, you will receive a copy of my book, "I Still Believe", about my experience exploring the grief of learning about mental illness too late, the anguish after the suicide of my son Ryan, and how faith became a foundation to rebuild my life. BTS is a nationwide program by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental illness) Queens/Nassau.It was piloted here in NM.
