A System in Crisis

The video below is a short documentary about the harsh realities of having mental health issues and disabilities in North Dakota. Simply put: people who need help have extremely limited resources to get the help they need. Each of us can be an advocate for change by raising awareness about the road blocks these individuals face everyday. Please watch and share this video.

This video is owned and was created by the Mental Health Advocacy Network of North Dakota.

bryan-finalQ. Tell us about yourself and your role within the organization.
Born and raised in the Bismarck area, and I have lived in North Dakota for most of my life, other than for five years that we lived in Missouri, where I worked as the Executive Director of a Non-Profit in the St. Louis Area. I am an avid runner and I am a die-hard St. Louis Cardinal and Green Bay Packer fan. I have been married to my wife, Lisa for the past 25 years and we have three children- Brandon, Tara and Lauren.

I have worked in the field of developmental disabilities since 1981, most of those years working for non-profit organizations in North Dakota and Missouri. I founded Community Options in 1997 and have served as President for the past 20 years.
