How did I chose F.O.R.C.E? Partly it was a recommendation (I talked to a few medical professionals to find out which organizations might be appropriate) but a lot of it was wanting the money to go where it would benefit most. I honestly don't think I'm going to raise millions of $, this is really about awareness. I think one of the most important things about F.O.R.C.E. for Kids is that it helps families understand what is going on in the mind of a child or sibling and helps to provide support and resources to deal with some very difficult issues.
More later...this is my first blog and my first post. We'll see how it works. Send me an email, maybe I can help tell your story here. That is what road 2blue is all about...encouraging conversation about mental illness so that we can help each other cope. Thanks for reading!
