Joanie Groome -  Caregiver/Advocate

“Open the Lid’s command of systems, the community, emotional intelligence, patience, person-centeredness, psychology, parenting concerns, inclusion, old systems. Amazing. So much of what’s available and how to resource it and when is all in silos, putting families in utter chaos. Open the Lid is so necessary!”
