Out Of My Mind is creating mental health content from a social justice perspective

Let’s Start With “Thank You” and an Introduction:
Thank you so much for coming by! I am Jennifer Liles, LCSW,  a licensed clinical social worker in the Kansas City metropolitan area who has also been writing about progressive politics and personal life for two decades now on various platforms. My mission is to assist as many people as possible in managing their mental health symptoms through the provision of services and products, education and advocacy, locally and globally. Patreon allows me to do so in such a way that I can provide free services to those who can't afford to pay thanks to the generosity of those who can. 

Out Of My Mind: 
Out Of My Mind is a podcast and videocast and a website focused on helping people with depression, anxiety, and trauma histories cope with everyday life. Due to some significant life events my primary focus in now shorter videos in a "Live" style, with occasional essays and microfiction just for fun. Patrons get access to most content at least three days before the general public. In addition, I host the  Out Of My Mind Facebook Group, which is a moderated space for professionals and people with mental health issues to socialize, get support, and learn from one another. 

Not only am I a mental health therapist, but I also live with my own issues with depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as executive function issues caused by a head injury. "Out of My Mind" (credit to Jean Rossner, LMHC, for the name) is my website, video, and podcast for people who want mental health assistance and want to make the world a better place for those living with mental health issues. 

10-30 minute videos and short essays provide discussions of various coping issues and strategies for folks with mental health issues, and each is tackled twice -- once to deal with personal issues, and once to deal with how the world interacts with people with mental health issues. 


So What Does My Patronage Pay For?

Exclusive! First! Run! Content!

Every Patron, at every level, gets to read essays, watch videos, and listen to podcasts at least three days earlier than the general public. 

In addition, because my best friend Katherine Malone is in heart failure and needs $20K to be put on the transplant list until her heart is funded, half of what comes to me through Patreon and PayPal for writing, videos, and audio will be donated for Kathy's heart. The other half will go to support my family and to justify spending more time on the writing, video recording, and podcasting I enjoy. 

The Bottom Line: 

Your patronage will increase the amount of writing I do that will teach people about mental health and social justice, will help me replace my husband's income so he can retire and allow his body to heal, and help my best friend get another 20-30 years or so out of her body before it gives out.

Finally, your patronage determines whether or not I can continue with this experiment of crowdfunding a gap in mental health provision in America through guided self-help videos and podcasts and mental health essays. Let's make this work!

Goals
8 of 20 patrons
When I reach 20 Patrons I will make time once a week every week for mental health and social justice discussion for paying patrons only (at any level) on Discord. Discord roles and the ability to choose topics will be reserved for higher tier Patrons.

These will be the "Out of My Mind Pajama Parties" because I will probably do them from bed on Sunday mornings.
