Description: Craig has been a part of the Boston punk rock community since 1988. He has been active playing in several bands, putting out the long running Upheaval Fanzine and also set up DIY shows for 15 years. Craig also has lived with the symptoms of mental illness his entire life. In the past several years, Craig experienced a remarkable recovery process which enabled him and empowered him to learn effective coping skills and to get a handle on his mental health struggles. After an amazing several years of intense struggle, Craig now is in recovery from his symptoms and works as a peer mental health counselor in Boston. Craig has successfully rehabilitated himself, and while he continues to struggle from time to time, he hopes that his inspirational story will be of benefit to his peers.
