Just received confirmation that I will be speaking at the 2016 MACMHP (Minnesota Association of Community Mental Health Programs) conference in St. Paul, MN, on Sept 2. This presentation will be based on my first book titled “A Life Interrupted – the story of my battle with bullying and obsessive compulsive disorder”. I am looking forward to the opportunity.

The following is taken directly from their website macmhp.org:

As the leading professional association for community-based mental health providers, the Minnesota Association of Community Mental Health Programs (MACMHP) exists to ensure this essential safety net remains strong, vibrant and engaged. We do this by: 

  • Serving as a proactive, unified voice of community mental health providers to drive public policy and advocate before the Minnesota legislature, the Governor and administrative departments.  
  • Providing resources, training and networking to help community mental health organizations and their providers and staff thrive.
  • Strengthening community mental health services through membership in the National Council for Behavioral Health.”


I am excited about this speaking engagement because it gives me an opportunity to speak to another group of professional community based mental health providers about the devastating long term mental health impact of bullying. I also hope to be able to emphasize the fact that many young children turn to bullying because of lack of emotional guidance and support in their own lives. Community mental health professionals can play a significant role in addressing these issues.
