Hi Anita, thank you for your message. I visited your website looks really informative and like it’s filled with great information and stories. I particularly liked the article on PSR factor’s affecting workplace environment.

I can certainly sympathize with your situation personally – it sounds like I could relate. Good luck with the site, your doing very important work. I am sure you make a lot of people feel less alone.

Hi Anita,
Thanks for reaching out. I very much admire what you have taken on to help others. I took a quick peek at the site, and I could definitely contribute something.
About 8 years ago, I released a book about my recovery from panic disorder, and am currently a volunteer speaker with an award-winning community group here in Durham Region called TAMI (Talking About Mental Illness).

Hope you’re taking good care of yourself while being such a wonderful support 🙂
Talk to you soon,

Hi there Anita,

Great to connect here. I live in Toronto.

Your website is great. I like that you’re focusing on personal stories – that’s what families need, and are rare to find. Thank you, also, for sharing your story. I’m happy to share an article on your blog. Feel free to choose which one you’d like to share from my site. =) We’ll move forward from there.

Kind Regards,

Please use the story/video however best it will help. I’ll check the site out! So glad to see people taking action!

There is such a misunderstanding when it comes to OCD as well. It’s so hard to get it across in a way people can relate to. I applaud you so much for doing what you can and more to better the lives of those you love, and bringing knowledge where there isn’t much.

Love this site, amazing job you’re doing Anita! I love that you are not the one who suffers, but you’re doing it because of people you love who are suffering. So amazing. The world needs you. I’d love to write for your site.
