Thank you for visiting our website. Joanne and I travel the
United States working to get this information out to as many people
as we can. Please consider helping us in our mission. Here are some
ways you could help:
to everyone you know about these rights. Even if they don't have a
psychiatric disability they may know someone who does.
our free booklet with others. Feel free to make copies (please!) and
hand it out to anyone you wish.
keep your eyes open for every opportunity to share the information
with professionals who work with people with psychiatric
disabilities (doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, case
workers, peer specialists, etc.). Doing this can help many, many
people with psychiatric disabilities.
look for opportunities to share this information with people who
work with animals (you vet's office, the local shelter, pet supply
stores, etc.) Many people with disabilities give up their existing
pets unnecessarily when they move.
about us to organizations you work for or belong to. WE SPEAK TO ANY INTERESTED GROUP FOR FREE. For example, we speak at clubhouses and
do in-service trainings. We'd love to speak to your organization.
you or someone you know has more questions or wants to speak to
someone who's been through the process of getting an emotional
support animal or living with/training a psychiatric service dog
give them our contact information from the cover of this booklet or
have them contact us through the contact us page on
We don't offer legal services, we don't provide or train animals,
and we don't have any money to give, but Joanne is always willing to
share her experiences or point someone in the right direction.
you are planning or know of a conference or gathering for which this
or similar information would be appropriate please contact us so we
can send a proposal.
again! We hope to see or hear from you in the future,
all my unconditional love,
Psychiatric Service Dog and Mental Health Advocate
