Thursday Writing Group at Our Place Clubhouse returns! We’ll be starting up again in October.

As facilitator of the 2012-13 Thursday Writing Group, I’ve never worked with a kinder group of people than the dozen writers who live with serious mental illness, and who strive for recovery every day.

Together we co-wrote “A Certain Slant of Light. Emerging from the Shadows of Mental Illness,” which we launched at the clubhouse on Jan. 17, 2014. More than 200 people celebrated with us!

If you’re a therapist, guidance counselor, middle-grade, high-school or college teacher, who would like free copies of “A Certain Slant of Light…” to share with clients or students, please let me know.

Let’s reduce the stigma of mental illness and support brain health in Tucson!

Shake it up baby...twist and shout.

Here’s to the growth and happiness of  each of our unique selves!
