Violent Behavior and Mental Health Disorders


For the month of April I am participating in the annual A-Z Blogging Challenge. The Challenge was started by author/blogger, Arlee Byrd.









Each day of the month (except Sundays) we will post something based on that days correlating letter. Some of us chose a theme and others are winging it.
