Deborah Geesling, founder of P82 Project Restoration, has a heart for those with serious mental illness. Her family experience has given insight into the serious gaps in the mental health system.
As her advocacy developed, she readily identified housing as being one of the top barriers to obtaining a life with dignity. P82 Project Restoration is an organization created to fulfill the dream of opening a Christ centered home for people who suffer with chronic mental illness.
Her advocacy work has led her to speak at conferences, testify on government panels, and be mentioned in a number of publications.
Tony knows her personally through the Advocates for People with Mental Illness Facebook group.
