The happenings of the Billy and Sheri Wardle family
What's In This Blog
I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health As I See It: In Our Community: Mental Illness
In Our Community. It is so difficult to lay your life open, but in this case Ms. Diana Guido does this and does it very well. She is a peer support, substance abuse counselor for Santa Clara County. She gives a very good over view of mental health services. This includes a discussion of the WRAP course. Wellness Recovery Action Plan is an evidence based peer support service in which attendees develop their personal plan for wellness. She also talks of being aMental Health First Aider. This also is a national training to help encourage people to look out for each other. She also educates people to the county's crisis and warm line, 1-855-278-4204.
We are the Wardles. I am Billy. We are the parents of 8, one in Heaven
(stillborn,) 6 birth and 1 adopted. Four are away from home, two
daughters married and two sons in the Logan area going to school. Tony,
our adopted son is 11 years younger than our youngest birth child, so
he is greatly spoiled. I have worked for the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Utah State Social Services, part of the time working with the Ute Tribe, Uintah Basin Counseling and Santa Clara County Mental Health for the last 21 years. Active Mormon and I follow the prophet.
