I am the Survey Center Manager working with reports and statistics of our survey panels and research. Recently, I was asked about my grant writing abilities. I really had not done this before. So, I am writing to inquire if it is possible to send a HARD COPY of the Tool Box for Grant Writing. I have reviewed on line but do not have the time either at work or home to spend that much time online.
If you are able to send me a hard copy, I can work at it little by little to educate myself to become a grant writer and expand our business. Thank You.

Hello,
I am a patient's rights advocate working in support of Kansas SB9: The Cannabis Compassionate Care Act. I am a mother to 7. I have worked in marketing/promotions/advertising for over 16 years but my passions are history and cultural anthropology. I am going back to school in Fall for a Public Administration degree from KU. I am hosting a rally on May 17th to support the cannabis act, Bleeding Kansas 2014 (Facebook group), and I am so grateful to have found your wonderful site.
I have already downloaded all your power points, and shared all pertinent pages with my Bleeding Kansas Protest Facebook group. This information will be invaluable in the coming months. I will be using your petition checklist tomorrow as call and get all the needed information to make sure the petition we will starting, asking for the act to be put to a public vote, is completely solid. I am so grateful to have found you!! Thank you so much. We have so many patients whose lives are in the balance. We lost a precious 18 month old this year. We have many other patients still waiting. It is imperative we do all we can, and also that we do it in the correct, and most effective manner.

We are a rural community in northern Nova Scotia (pop. 1,000). Predominantly farming, fishing and forestry. We have a good volunteer base, but a rapidly aging population. We have a fair amount of diversity, generally in the area of contractors and tourism/cottager support businesses. Our environment is relatively pristine - no big industry. Federal, provincial and municipal governments are no longer able to provide services at the level they previously could.
We just found your website and it provides us with most of the tools we feel we need to strengthen the ties that bind so that we can become more resilient and self-reliant. Fortunately, we are launching a quarterly community newspaper and will use it to promote participation in our asset mapping exercise. Each issue will solicit support in identifying the various assets (physical, social and personal) we have so we can determine where the gaps are. Thanks for helping a small community!

Who I am Use of CTB
I had done self-help groups on various topics here in south eastern Arizona in the pass. I have mental issues myself and find peer groups help me maintain a positive attitude toward myself and how I perceive the world around me. Is also a great way in creating alternative perceptions, alternative solutions to similar reoccurring events, and learn new ways to advocacy for each other and individually. It has been several years since I was involved in peer support and find my mental status becoming fragile and shaky. When I feel I cannot influence or control numerous events in my life; especially the way people treat me (after years of therapy), it occurred to me my attitude or perception has become negative. I lack hope and faith in living a better life. I must not be using alternatives in solving these similar reoccurring events; nor am I using alternative perspectives. It is time to facilitate a self-help peer support group, since there are none available here.
I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress severe enough that serious mental illness was attached. There is a debate over whether I have Borderline personalty or Complex-PTSD. I disagree with the borderline personalty (rural mental health center) and agree with Complex-PTSD (my therapist, I was seeing outside the rural mental health center).
Another factor is the policy changes that are occurring which is putting physical and mental health care together puts primary care physicians at the fore-front of mental health issues and potentially access to mental health programs even a worse problem in rural areas because of the lack of choices in physicians' or facilitators of various programs.
Additional factor is that the majority of rural communities cultural differences are extremely diverse and lack major perspective similarities from one to another.
Last factor is wanting to return to obtain my Bachelors degree in psychology. I have five classes to go however have failed Abnormal Psychology twice and withdraw 3 times; I need to overcome this issue.
Noteworthy points:
1- Our rural mental health centers use a more authoritative approach because most individuals are mandated by the court to use these facilities. They put people who volunteer to enter groups, treatment or therapy in these programs. One program does not fix everyone. (I am volunteer.)
2- My personal experience is that the majority of rural mental health centers lack programs that are client-oriented programs rather than court-oriented programs. Peer support groups are rare.
3- Client-oriented programs vs court-oriented programs
*Client-oriented programs are designed in a way that the service is non-compliant if the client does not like the facilities groups, treatment, or therapy, as well as, the facilitators' behavior, attitude, attendance, or performance. The service works for the client similar to an advertising service works for a business.
**Court-oriented programs are designed in a way that the client is non-compliant if the facilitator does not like the client's behavior, attitude, attendance, or performance. Service is provided for the client to meet courts requirements and service must uphold court regulations.
4-Equality is an excellent perspective; however, individuals unique differences can be overlooked, consequently individuals become objects in the process. People have different perceptions of people, events, and items attached to emotions. Objects lack perceptions nor possess emotions that are processed without differences, this makes object's performance the priority than than the object its self.
Note: You can quote me and have my permission to do so!! You can also use my name!
I am looking for new topics for self-help peer support group relevant to solving every day issues that attack a person's self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence.
Alternative approaches to resolving interactions with dealing with government programs, the continual policy changes, overwhelming increasing paperwork, and being treated like an object rather than a person. Learning and teaching now to advocate for one's self.
Alternative approaches to resolving interactions with family, friends, and the community.
Last but not least alternative perceptions of one's self, others, events, and programs. (As well, past and present behavior or treatment of the mentally ill by individuals in psychology relevant to abnormal psychology).

I am a social entrepreneur targeting to build a healthy community and bring about a social change.
This is a start-up and still on an Idea stage.
I hold an advanced certificate of Education. I am happily married with 15 dependents.
I am very happy to find this tool box and I send my appreciation. This, for a very long time I have been struggling to find; thank you so much for exemplary good work.
However, I intend to create a social enterprise targeting working to build healthy community and bring about a social change. I am looking at how better I can prepare my community to work together to change conditions that affect their lives. My community (the Iteso) had a pride over their cows and this was their bank; it was a source of school fees and general well being of the community. Between 1986 to 1993, the Iteso lost their pride to cattle rustlers. The Iteso now rely on subsistence farming as a source of their general well being including school fees for their children. Through universal primary/secondary education, Educational standards have gone down as compared to years before 1986. Recent poverty statistics show 54% of the Iteso community are below poverty line. Based on the data provided, I hope to succeed.

The only grocery store serving Itta Bena, MS the Woody Grocery Store, Closed approximately five (5) years ago in downtown. The closest stories now located in Greenwood some ten (10.7m) miles away. Needless to say, the distance causes some hardship, especially for those persons and families without their own transportation. This situation also contributes to the food desert, a place underserved by a full service grocery store within walking distance.
Several groups, including the Mayor of Itta Bena, joined in the effort to develop an organization to provide food items to the local community. we are now a consortium of community leaders, concerned citizens, and city and counties entities. Some of the current organizations involved includes: The City of Itta Bena, Greenwood-Leflore Industrial Board, Leflore County Board of Supervisors, and Mid-Delta Investment Club. Other Community Stakeholders invited to Partnership with our continuing effort are: 1. Blackcrowdfunding.net 2. Foundation for the Mid-South 3. Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis / Memphis Branch and 4. Mississippi valley State University. Next Step: We are currently planning a "Building Collaborative Communities" Workshop.
