I had no idea that my quest to spread mental health awareness would travel to the ends of the earth—literally! My book, Save-My-Life School: A First Responder’s Mental Health Journey, just released this past January, is an outgrowth of my blog, which chronicled my battle with PTSD, depression, addiction, overdoses and a suicide attempt.

Organically, people have been posting pictures of the book all over the world to the Facebook page savemylifeschool. There are over a hundred different shots of the book from Mexico to Kuwait to Vimy Ridge; with celebrities, politicians, children, dogs, cats and in front of workplaces. It is a plethora of interesting travels with my mental health ‘journey.’

Heather Down, publisher remarks, “It’s kind of funny because we were brainstorming ways to get traction and our PR manager, Kim Forster happened to post a beautiful picture of the book with her new puppy and it just started a trend. We had no idea this would happen.”
