This weekend was my father’s birthday. Arthur Anselmo is my personal connection to mental health issues. He is the reason I am so passionate about solving this problem for others. I want to make sure that all the citizens of Hennepin County have their mental health attended to and that they are cared for.
I love my father very much. I miss his humor & ranger wisdom. He could be a challenging person at times. But his life lesson of perseverance will always stay with me. ❤️
Below is his journey, and why mental health matters so much to me.
