Mrs. Jodie Hansohn

I am a wife and a mother. I have been married for 18 years and my son is 17 years old and “I have Bipolar”. “I have Bipolar” but it does not have me. Through many years of counseling, I have learned to manage and succeed with the illness. From 2011 to 2020 I have been therapy and learned to thrive with my counselor, Ms. Annetta Benjamin, MA LPC, NCC. Now I am coaching with Ms. Benjamin to help bring awareness to clients and mental health professionals; of how to succeed with the Bipolar Illness. 

In regard to my background, I worked at the Department Of Agriculture, then became a stay at home mom, and I also volunteered for a Hospice Organization. As far as my mental health education, I have received Certifications from The National Counsel For Behavior Health, Mental Health First Aid USA, and Youth Mental Health First Aid USA. Currently, I provide quarterly presentations for the staff at Benjamin Counseling Center about the Bipolar Illness.

For the future I look forward to working with individuals, organizations, and institutions in the mental health field to provide more insight on coping and succeeding with a mental illness.
