Hey there! This is Heidi and it’s so good to meet you!
We all could use a little objective, passionate – about – mental health, advocate in our shirt pocket.
That would be me!
I’ve spent over 13 years in both public and private practice mental health as a child, adolescent and family therapist and have learned a few things along the way that can help you get more of what you need and want in the mental health system in Washington and Oregon.
This includes areas attached to mental health such as:
— Protection, needs and rights of children
— Education, literacy, options to vocations
— Affordable Housing
— Barriers to employment
— Social justice
— Juvenile Justice
— Equality for invisible disability
— Food deserts and insecurity
— Addictions and recovery
— Gun violence prevention and laws
— Environmental impact
— Service dogs
— Domestic violence
— Domestic violence laws
— Discrimination based on mental illness
— LGBTQ Community
— Representative Payee problems
— Seniors and aging needs, rights, protection
— Medicines for mental illness
— Getting the care and treatment you really need
— Getting services usually not advertised; such as, gym and hobby supply grants, women in business grants, continuing education/training, getting and using a computer and the internet, transportation.
Any of these ring a bell for you or someone you love or care for?
Give me a call and let’s see what can be done to improve the situation.
I offer a sliding fee scale and children get their resources for free.
I can accept credit card payments through Paypal.com or money orders or company checks.
Call me at (360) 842-3479, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also do a lot of freelance art and writing, and you’ll find a great sample of all that at my other website, http://www.hhansenma.worpress.com.
Thanks! And remember, never ever ever give up!
