Mr. Reed shared with MPN that his brother recently committed suicide and that has inspired him to want to help others living with mental illness.

“The mental health issues which led to the loss of my brother is still very tough for me to accept.  It definitely opened my eyes to how severe and widespread mental illness is.  Counseling Connections For Change is a great source of support for those who are currently in the fight with mental health issues and I hope you join me in supporting this great organization.”

“This fundraiser is also for the “Hope For Three,” an Autism awareness and support program.”

Helping Reed with the event is the owner of PJ’s Coffee, Kyra who has a child with Autism.
