Since 2020 we have seen an incredible surge of Mental Health Issues in not only the United States but also in our world. Our children are killing themselves at alarming rates, their mental health has deteriorated to the worse in our history. The root causes run deep but the explosion's came to a head with the Lockdowns and isolation of the "pandemic". What we are witnessing is a catastrophe of monumental proportions, that if not stopped will be devastating to our entire globe for years to come.
Our founding member, Paul E Jones has been involved with mental health for years. As one who has suffered from deep clinical depression most of his life, Paul found himself touring the country speaking on the topic of Manic Depression and Suicide prevention for several years. Using his comedic abilities, Paul fast became one of the most sought after Mental Health Speakers in the country at that time. Lecturing at colleges across the country to include; Johns Hopkins, The Citadel, to name a few as well as Speaking to our Nations Military, Police Departments and Business leaders, Paul's ability to captivate and Educate on such a deep subject became very well received.
Paul made the very difficult decision to cease touring due to conflicts in how he was being asked to "edit" his shows due to the Political Correct Environment on our nations college campuses. Well, the days of being SILENT are OVER and Paul has been contacted time and time again over the past year to get back involved. Not only by some of the very same people who tried to muzzle him and his approach, but by countless parents, friends and others who know of his success on the topic.
Paul has created "Music, Mental Health and Motivation" to embark on fighting this new "Plague" that we are facing. The program consist of a solid new presentation of facts and "real" solutions, Music that is intertwined with the stories behind the songs and of course all wrapped up in comedy to ensure an event filled with emotion and education!
We MUST STOP the suicides and we MUST help our children get back on a solid path of good Mental Health. We are running out of time and the TIME is NOW!
TOURING STARTS in Late 2022 and will be in full swing by Spring 2023.
About the Show:
The core of the presentation will focus on the differences between Mental Health and Mental Illness. Why is this important? Paul has found during his years of touring that the vast majority of people do not understand the difference, thus why we have such stigma surrounding the entire topic. Understanding the difference was KEY for Paul in facing his own battles. Once he understood the difference he was able to navigate better.
While his past presentations concentrated on those suffering from both mental health and or mental illnesses, todays presentation will help educate those who are supporting them as well as closing the gap of the stigma surrounding the topic.
Using his comedic abilities, life's experiences, and now the addition of music, this presentation is designed to capture the attention of all who attend.
