Hey! My name is Joseph Reid. I am a Connections Facilitator and active member of NAMI Kent County. I am also of a the best-selling book Broken Like Me. Because I wrote this book, it comes from someone who knows about the struggle of having a serious mental disorder. It contains the introduction of a universal Mental Health Scale that helps people communicate better with loved ones, introduces a new take on the benefits of journaling, and dives real deep into the emotional benefits of healthy friendships. I’d love it you took at a look at some of the reviews and maybe shared it with your community! Thank you!

I'd be SO honored if you'd check out the reviews and consider making a purchase! The e-book is onsale for .99. Or order the paperback today for 17.99.

Thank you for your consideration!

I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit organization, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, organizations, agencies, clinics, businesses, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations start up and often a phone is used to take a pic of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.
I have a young relative who feels he is bi-polar with PTSD possibly. Where do we start getting him help?
