This weekend I will be joining a trek up Mt. Washington with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
I strive, in any way I can, but especially with light and love, to eradicate the heavy and discriminatory attitude toward mental illness.
I participate in honor of my son, Joshua Patrick Farney, who lost his battle with mental illness at only 24 years old. One of his favorite places to be was in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
