Spent today with our national - Building Community Resilience collaborative, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and leaders from across Oregon, asset mapping and eating pizza. I ❤️ this work.
Listen for me on air tomorrow morning at I'll post the online version later today. Thanks for having me on your show, Sheila! I love what you are doing to fight stigma and change dangerous narratives around mental and behavioral health.

Now today the internet is sending me links to this ginger bank robber in Texas because they think he looks like me. I have to agree...questionable taste level and otherwise terrible accessories aside, of course. 😉 Story: http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2016/08/fbi_looking_for_red-bearded_ba.html #MostWantedDoppelganger
Spending the day in Salem, Oregon tomorrow to kick-off Organizational Days in the first legislative session of 2015 and meet with leadership about how we can make our state a safe, supportive place for ALL people!
Monday morning strategy session in Burbank with our Social Impact team! Thank you to Sheila Hamilton for being my partner in this work. Every moment spent with you is time I am beyond grateful for. And big thanks to my Keep Oregon Well team, Sadiki Stone and JoAnn Schinderle, for being part of this journey with us. What a ride!!! ✊🏻 #MentalHealthMatters
After proving to myself over the course of the past couple of years that the only way I will ever incorporate routine physical exercise into my life is if I invest in something that is both easy to use AND pretty to look at (because leaving the house and putting things away are the top two barriers, for whatever reason) I finally pulled the lever and ordered this WaterRower from MoMA Design Store. ENTER: SHIRTLESSNESS. ☀️
Day 2 of the Keep Oregon Well PSA extravaganza is in the bag! Thanks again to Portland Film Works, Sheila Hamilton, Samantha Swaim and everyone else who appeared or spoke in one of the new videos. I’m super moved by all of your stories.
