Inspired by actual events, “Will Tomorrow Forgive?” is an honest look at the faults in our mental health systems and the imperfections in ourselves.
These first-person accounts remain timeless.
Our system repeats the same cycles of treatment: over-hospitalization, chemical restraint and/or incarceration; with little therapeutic value towards recovery.
It’s been said that “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” We have to wonder what will treat this insanity.
Don’t you think it’s time to change?
Will Gerald keep his calm façade?
Is Lizzy truly sober?
Has Trevor actually kicked his gambling habit?
Is Marc Lah Marc actually doing fine?
Is everyone in Carmen’s family actually diagnosed?
Is Tululah still suicidal?
All this and more will be answered in future episodes.
You do not need a diagnosis to attend a support group. All are welcome.

This respected psychologist is the author of self-help books No Trout About It: Fishing and The Art of Mental Wellness, and Whole in One: Keeping Your Mental Health On Par. After over thirty-five years as a private clinician, he retired in 2013, but returned as a Peer Specialist in 2016.
He enjoys facilitating groups, fishing, golfing, collecting pins, and spending time with his many grandchildren.
Lizzy is a former nurse and a full-time Peer Specialist. She is proudly four years into her substance misuse recovery and three years into mental wellness. In 2018, she was the recipient of the coveted Velvet Women’s Community Initiative grant and used it to start the Stethoscope to Stethoscope network; an informal social support group for nurses in recovery. Recent health issues have kept Lizzy from the activities she loves, but if there is one thing she has learned in her recovery, it’s perseverance.
Trevor is a simple guy that likes simple things. A solitary x-box game, a can of mango flavored Fanta, and noise-cancelling headphones are all he needs for a good time. Even though his love for betting on e-sports and his aversion to people isn’t the healthiest, as a programmer, he knows that sometimes you don’t need to scrap a code entirely- you can just add a few lines. He’s still learning, but he invites you to learn with him.
Just don’t, you know, make him talk in public.
Carmen will tell you that her first priority above all else is her family. Now that she is on her third marriage, she has amassed quite a family! Part-time slipper sales-person, but full-time step-mom and sometimes grandmother means that Carmen’s time is precious. But she is always willing to give her time, her attention, her opinion, to the people in her life, especially the fellow members of MIRIAD.
What is there to say about Marc Lah Marc? What can’t be said about him? Actor. Writer. Director. Visionary. Artisté. Renaissance Man.
All these and more into one perfect package.
When asked about Marc Lah Marc,
Banksy could only answer “Who?” Who indeed.

Mama always said there were two types of people in the world: Those that people paid attention to, and those that commanded none. According to Mama, Tululah was always the latter. That doesn’t stop her from trying. She’s tried her hand at a few local commercials. In her biggest role to date, you can see her as girl #3 in Every Tear Tissues most recent ad, where she cried before and after queue. She’s taking a year off Drama School at the moment to begin her recovery in earnest.
You may have seen support group scenes in movies and TV, but you haven’t seen anything like this.
