Posted another video onto YouTube. In this one I share a little of Mom's cute perspective and on brain structure differences of some people with schizophrenia. Hope you enjoy it.

I spoke to legislators at the Illinois Capital in Springfield yesterday, asking them to continue funding Supportive Housing. My sweet Mama had to live in a nursing home from when she was only 47 until she passed away last year - 34 years later. Part of the reason she was in a nursing home was that there were not good supportive housing options for her when she needed them as a younger woman. I'm very glad she had a nursing home to live in, but Mom wanted to contribute by working and since she was stabilized because she was medication compliant, she could have worked. But the nursing home would not let her, reducing her quality of life. Supportive housing is a better solution for a young person with a mental illness disability like my mom was.

I received this email from one of the people who heard my talk in Texas:

Your presentation was really wonderful. I got a lot out of each session I attended but yours was probably the most personal, and hopeful, while acknowledging just how challenging it is loving a family member through the illness. I was able to to pass on some of your hopeful story to a woman who approached me after a meeting recently. Thank you again, Jim Sturgis

So great to know my story is helping others have insight and heal.
