What I need is financial support for housing, food and transportation while I enter into an intensive outpatient program here in Seattle.
I am presently homeless, jobless. Hopeful, grateful.
As I create this campaign, I am a voluntary inpatient at the University of Washington Medical Center. I am receiving excellent care. A comprehensive approach to wellness. I am grateful for this opportunity.
Mental illness is real. Misunderstood. In most cases incurable. The diagnosis and treatment has improved very little in the 30 years I have been involved with the mental health establishment.
Brain science is a relatively new field. It is full of pitfalls. The support for the mentally ill is woefully insufficient.
