Police Academy – Kent State Trumbull – Nov 2018

I was honored to present my story to help the current candidates at the Police Academy at Kent State Trumbull learn more and understand about those who have a mental illness. I’m hoping that this helps to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness and makes them comfortable in learning more about it.

The setting —  I’m playing a manic woman believing that she is Vivian Van Gogh. “Gramps” Vincent is giving me painting instructions from on high. I won’t turn down the loud music that helps me painting.

There was a great turn out of 22 officers graduating from the rigorous week-long CIT* training this time around.
