Moving Together For Change
I am passionate about assisting others in their health and well-being to Live Independently for Excellence (Free of Fear, Anger and/or Doubt). We mainly focus on mental health, because I believe that most of society's problems stem from beliefs that are developed by traumatic experiences. Reconciliation Movement is a platform alongside community partners to create, develop and implement non-traditional forms of mental health treatment and support for those who can't afford treatment or for those who would not normally seek help.
