    A Book that will Change Your Community!
    "Larry Hayes provides families with a real self-help manual that is personal and compassionate, yet practical and hands-on. It is long overdue and can only come from someone who has been there--in the trenches. Larry certainly has."
    --Stephen C. McCaffrey, President, Mental Health America of Indiana

    "With a father's wit and a reporter's well-honed writing skills, Larry Hayes uses his family's story to offer practical suggestions about how communities can help persons with mental illnesses recover and thrive. This is a wonderful blueprint that spells out ways to change lives and help persons seldom seen or heard."
    --Pete Earley, author, CRAZY: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness

    "Larry Hayes demonstrates in this book a very rare gift that he has, the ability to reduce complex social problems to simple terms. In addition, he fills the book with practical solutions and ways to reduce the somet-imes debilitating effects of mental illness."
    --James C. Howell, Ph.D., juvenile justice researcher
