Hi My Name is Donna Massel and I am one of the leaders of the York Region Chapter. I have 3 sons ages 22, 20 and 17. My son Matthew is 17. He is a bright, delightful and energetic boy who has Tourette syndrome, ADHD, some LDs and anxiety and ptsd related to school. Life has been really tough for him. He has spent more time out of school than in. At present he is in school but we live one day at a time.

My passion has become advocating for more help and funding for Children's Mental Health care at both the government and education levels. My hope is that by sharing what our family has gone through we can some how improve the systems and make things better for other children. Perhaps that is naive but it keeps me going.
