Clint Rayner Mental Health Hero 2010 Cartoon-A-Thon for Mental Health Awareness Month.

I recently got an e-mail from the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Florida Department of Children and Families.  It was from Clinton Rayner, the director who oversees all the Mental Health Consumer and Stakeholder Affairs for all of Florida.

It was so encouraging to me I wanted to share it, and hopefully to set a precedent that many others will follow… I need outside validation. So send me lots of encouragement. :)

What JOY to bring a new life into the world! Most women want their baby born healthy and to live a long, happy life! Did you know that recent research and studies show “pregnant women who smoke may be at a higher risk of having a child with ADHD”?

Secondhand smoke in the home, according to new research, poses a “50% increased risk (to children exposed) of developing two or more behavioral and learning disorders as well as ADHD.” Why put your child’s future at risk?! DON’T LIGHT UP so he/she can…shine bright, live and breathe well!

My home is my sanctuary, sanitarium and asylum… all in one! When I go out, it’s only to the do some shopping or pay a bill and or take the kids out to give Mom a respite. The cartoon really touches home for me.  Sometimes, I feel safe in my little corner of my room.  Other times, it’s where I lick my wounds to heal. Then when times are rough, my room feels like a little padded cell.  Is it just me? or does anyone else feel this way, too?
