I provide direct support to families who have children with mental health and behavioral challenges, this ranges from helping families navigate systems, one-on-one work and organizing support groups. I am responsible for 5 Oregon counties. I am also a member of Oregon's Addictions and Mental Health Policy & Management Council, as well as numerous other committees.
I am a NAMI Basics trainer & on the Board for NAMI Mid-Valley.
My involvement has grown out of my own need for help and support with our three adopted children. This has led me to now to put back more than I have taken!
