Share Hope through Art has been a volunteer run organization.  The founder wanted to turn suicide prevention, her passion, into a career.  Judith Viers decided to go back to renew her social work license and is now working at Healing Hearts Carroll as a mental health therapist, specializing in depression and loss who can include creating memorial keepsakes, and leading groups/ workshops to help in the mental health pandemic with the same mission of suicide prevention and also to help clients live their best lives possible and have peace within. Judith is also a writer on mental health.  Books at: J. K. Viers - Books and Publications Spotlight | Lulu.

Fundraising Book

Crap Happens Philosophy Introducing the Psychology & Sociology of Crap is a fundraising book for Share Hope through Art and may be used in future workshops, book discussion groups, and potentially a course. The purpose of this book is to help people come to terms with their struggles, so they can start overcoming them.
