Hello Washington DC friends and peers,

My name is Craig and I will be speaking in DC on Monday evening August 6th.

The talk is called 'Punk Rock, Mental Illness and Recovery' and it is my recovery story.

I have been involved with the punk community in Boston since the late 80's and I was mentally unhealthy for much of that time. In recent years, I have discovered 'recovery' and I am now working as a peer mental health counselor in Boston.

I am taking my story on the road in hopes to offer support to my peers and to help inspire my peers to embrace recovery and wellness. I suffered for far too many years with the symptoms of mental illness and using substances and I have embraced recovery and my life has improved greatly.

I will be speaking at The Rocketship space in DC on Monday August 6th at 6:30 pm.

Please click on this link for all the information and please spread the word. If you make it out, please introduce yourself.
Thanks you and be well.

-Craig

Here is the Facebook invite for the August 6th event. Hope to see you there.
