As I prepare to head out tomorrow morning on my 10,000-mile trek to promote mental health and addiction awareness, I would like to give a special thanks to my family at the National Board for Certified Counselors Foundation for all their support and encouragement. You have helped and assisted me in more ways than I can count, expected or deserve. I will forever be grateful for your kindness.

With much love and gratitude,

Robert A. Horne, Ph.D., M.Div., NCC, LPC, ACS, LCAS, CSI, ICAADC, MAC
