In the pause: I’ll be speaking at MW CARES Day at Monroe-Woodbury High School

I’m so happy to share this wonderful news with you! I’ve been asked to be a speaker at Monroe-Woodbury High School in the Hudson Valley. They are putting together a 3,000-person event called MW CARES Day that includes 2,400 high school students as well as teachers, staff, district leadership, and community officials.

The theme of the day is to promote compassion, acceptance, respect, empowerment, and success throughout the Monroe-Woodbury Community and beyond. I’ll be talking about my book, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, as well as my upbringing and the journey that led me to where I am today, all for the purpose of breaking the stigma around mental health challenges.

This is exactly the kind of event I’ve been dreaming about doing, and one of the main reason I wrote my book. Keep reaching, friends. It’s worth the effort.
