Mary Jadwisiak has been speaking out on behalf of people with mental illness for nearly 20 years. In 2003, she decided to connect her love of speaking and training with the knowledge and skills she learned from her personal recovery journey and her professional system advocacy work. What a winning combination! Since then, she hasn’t looked back. She has worked with international corporations including Nintendo America and LivingWorks Education, Inc. as well as state governments including the Office of the Governor of the State of Washington and The Hawaii Department of Health. She has worked with many counties and private agencies throughout Oregon, Washington, California and Nevada. Throughout it all Mary’s keen insights into what is necessary for personal transformation or system transformation bring hope and recovery. She infuses hope into everything she does and she’ll teach you how to do it too. Mary understands the power of hope because her life has been transformed by it. Her personal story of recovery from PTSD, addiction, poverty & isolation is woven though out each keynote, workshop or consultation that she provides.
Mary is regularly sought out by print and broadcast news outlets for her expertise in mental health recovery and suicide prevention. As the Spokesperson for Hope, She will educate, inform, entertain and inspire.
