#MHAW17 What more can be done? Part 3

“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”—Ronald Reagan.

A quick scan across the political and social landscape and you might recognise that things aren’t hunky dory. The divide between classes feels ever wider, those that can afford therapy and those that don’t have much of anything; issues that existed in the time of Dickens still exist today. So how do we bridge that divide?

I … Continue reading People Power
