I am a High School Art teacher. for years I worked on the Crisislink Hotlines as a listener, here in the D.C suburbs, but took a break from this through for the past few years. I also worked in psychiatric services for a number of years running art clubs in day centers. My son has mental health problems, diagnosed with OCD. Now living in Nashville, he is living and coping with his OCD every day. I am passionate about advocating for people with mental health issues and now feel it’s time to get back to volunteering in some way.
