I have met Shelley Bishop, and am VERY pleased to share this article with my readers, Shelley is one of the folks who has been an inspiration in the mental health community here in Pennsylvania for many years, in fact I was very familiar with her name long before I ever met her, which in this case is an awesome thing.
