Lemonade Ahead!

By August 12, 2014May 15th, 2020No Comments

We’re excited to report that Chloe will be discharged from residential treatment on Thursday! Just in time to travel to Portland to watch Sophia’s soccer tournament. It has definitely been an eye opening journey and one that we will continue. I’m so proud of Chloe for her hard work, determination and courage and we welcome her home with open arms.

We all mourn the tragedy of Robin Williams taking his life yesterday, all at the hands of mental illness that is so shunned and stigmatized in our society. It shouldn’t take his death to shed light on this void in resources, acceptance and support in our communities.

If you’re a Southern Orgonian, join me at the March4Hope on Saturday, September 13, 2 pm at the Inn at the Commons in downtown Medford. Senator Dr. Alan Bates will be speaking to help raise awareness and urge reform. For more information, visit NAMI-SO on Facebook. Spread the lemonade!
