year comes to a close, I am counting my blessings and find
that among the things that I am thankful for is Peace of Body
Peace of Mind and the Taking Charge classes based on your
son has struggled with mental health issues since childhood.
He is now thirty and has NEVER previously shown any interest
in work or in being involved in any type of program or service.
However, at my request, about six months ago, he did agree
to take Joan Nobiling's Taking Charge classes. Not only did
he agree to take the classes but he actually went! Since then
I have seen a dramatic change in his outlook and ability to
manage his mental health challenges. He is actually implementing
the techniques outlined in Peace of Body Peace of Mind. He
is now so much more pleasant and healthy, both mentally and
physically. What a pleasure it is to see the real person he
is instead of being overwhelmed by the symptoms of his illness!
son was about fourteen years old, a child psychologist told
me that I was "in for a lot of heart ache" and that
he would "get worse, not better over time". I am
happy to report that that is not the case! Thank you to you
and Joan Nobiling for making practical mental health self
help tools available through your book and through the development
of Taking Charge classes.
