A Path to Hope came about on the encouragement of my dear friend, Carol. It h been a long 18-months of navigating the mentalhealthcare puzzle in search of help for a member of our family who was suffering in silence with a anxiety and depression. As a nurse and amother, I could not believe how difficult it was to find the help weneeded. We did the best we could through trial and error andeventually formed an aggressive treatment plan to start the healing process. Our path was rough and bumpy and had finally smoothed out and the healing that we prayed for finally started to take place. It wasthen that I decided to do something to make the path of others a little easier to navigate.
My mission is to offer support and guidance to jump start the process for parents who have a child who is suffering. In the past 2 years, the occurrence of suicide in our community has been staggering, our children are facing challenges that we cannot comprehend. They are reminded of their insecurities 24/7 by social media. I am not suggesting that these tragedies could have been prevented, I am simply offering to share what I have learned (the good, the bad, andthe ugly).
If you know of someone who may not know where to turn, please share this page. I pray that I can help ease the stress of the process for someone.
