Parenting a child with differences has ENRICHED our lives beyond our wildest dreams. We wouldn't change a thing.
quote by: Stacy & Bill Quaid, Bradenton, Florida
“State of Mind” shows viewers that mental illness frequently goes unheard. Many people cannot deal or understand mental disorders because they fear it. When an individual suffers from a mental illness, they feel lost, different, and worthless compared to everyone else. These individuals need to be heard and express themselves. Having a mental illness doesn’t make anyone different; it makes that person a unique individual who expresses his or her differences differently.
