This site started on a free WordPress blog (which still remains in place) and was moved to my own hosting account so I could have more control over the content and the way I want to use this blog.

I am a psychiatric RN and have worked with the acutely ill psychiatric patients for the last 20 years.  I love my work and I love my patients; what I don’t love is the general population’s image of my patients.  The stigma of mental illness keeps wonderful people from living full and functional lives.

I will post articles and my thoughts here on this blog.  I hope you enjoy the content.  I encourage comments.  I love to chat with people who have opposing viewpoints.  I enjoy conversing with most people anyway.  Let me know if there is a mental health topic you wish to have addressed here and I will try to do so.

I am a real person and my picture is to the right.
