I have been exposed to chronic mental illness most of my life and when my wife’s sister who is also chronically ill joined Pathways I experienced first hand the remarkable job the organization does for loved ones in providing critical care and a loving environment. As I have become more involved with the organization and joined the board, I came to recognize how often people with mental illness are forgotten and how appreciative they are when someone is willing to listen and lend a hand. What they don’t appreciate is how they have also enriched my life
I was inspired by the enormous need that we discovered from the many frustrating years of trying to find help for our son living with mental illness. Out of that nightmare, I was moved to create Pathways – a place where our son could receive care, grow, and find a home.
