May – Mental Health Month

May is National Mental Health

Hello Friends, 

There are so many people who struggle with mental illness and our family has been hit in a big way by the effects of it. Our son and brother, Jeremy, suffered with Bi-Polar Depression and eventually took his life. You can read our story here. We want to support and help those who are facing issues and feelings like Jeremy did.
