'I Am Adam Lanza's Mother': A Mom's Perspective On The Mental Illness Conversation In America

'I Am Adam Lanza's Mother': A Mom's Perspective On The Mental Illness Conversation In America

“I too had a son who suffered from violent outbreaks as a child. I was often told he would never be able to live in society. I never believed them and did everything in my power to make him better. I am one of the lucky ones whose child was able to recover from the darkness. He finished high school at the top of his class and is now in college. My heart breaks when I hear these stories because I was once there. I was once the frighten mother who didn't know if my child would live past the age of 18. We need more and better metal health services for families in the USA.”

“I received my MFA in 2009 from Wichita State. It is a decently funded program and the teaching load is light 2/2. The living stipend is small but since cost of living is so affordable in Wichita I suggest you apply there. There is a a nice community of MFA's and MA's and the university campus is beautiful. I have heard though from friends who are still in the program that it is getting tougher to get in the program. And, sadly, WSU still does not have a nationally recognized literary magazine, but I know that there are people in the department who are working to change that situation.”
