“My mission to help those in need. They are not alone, hold on to hope and happiness is real. Sometimes we need help finding it, and that’s okay.” – Michael Gillett
My Journey in writing this book has come to end. Now I have two goals.
Teach folks that balance in life is achievable and share a game plan where individuals can do something bigger than what they initially believed.
Change the culture where it is normal to talk about mental illness in the same way we talk about cancer, flu, heart disease, a broken arm. PTSD and Diabetes have no cure, they are managed in some very similar ways: Good Diet, Exercise, Stress Reduction. When you have a heart attack, you get balloons sent to the hospital. I didn’t see any balloons being sent to the Trauma Hospital. This is an easy change. We just need to share and learn from each other.
