Mark’s Journey: Trapped – Six days in a bad Mental Health facility

Been out of pocket for a couple weeks, unfortunately experiencing the dark side of a mental health facility.  I discuss the events and unbelievable activity that took place in my six days at the facility in a vlog post.  Everyone, stay strong, and know that getting treatment is still the best way to go…just be careful and make sure you find the right provider and/or facility!  Take care everyone!

Mental Health First Aid

Recently I took a Mental Health First Aid certification course.  It was a great experience and I talk about the class and its benefits in the video below.  I had never heard of this type of class until I stumbled upon it, but was glad I found it and took the class.  It was informative, helpful, and I believe a great tool to help battle the negative and ridiculous stigmas surrounding mental health.  They have classes all over the country and there are organizations who offer this type of class outside of the US as well.  Here is the link to the Mental Health First Aid USA site.
