Jason M Teagarden
“Insurance isn’t covering this…so far, we’ve had to pay 100% out of pocket.”
Janine and Jay Teagarden are fundraising with Help Hope Live for the residential treatment costs for their adopted son, Jason, who is living with multiple mental health issues including complex PTSD.
Due to childhood trauma, both Jason and his brother experience daily physical and mental challenges related to their mental health diagnoses. The COVID-19 pandemic intensified Jason’s difficulties, with episodes that placed their loving and funny kid into a traumatic state with a heightened fight-or-flight response.
“Some wounds and illnesses cannot be seen. Our son has such wounds.”
The residential treatment program that Janine and Jay have found for Jason is a significant source of hope and the only place where he can receive the care they believe he needs to make genuine progress. Fundraising and community support are necessary to bring that hope within reach.
