Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Book Cover

First, thank you to those who have purchased a T-shirt or Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep book. In particular, Thank you all for taking the initiative to address the importance of mental health and reducing the stigma.

I am preparing to head home this weekend for the first two events promoting my book. Of course, I had to take a moment and reflect on the past month. I have sold over 200 hundred books. In fact, that isn’t counting numbers from Amazon and Barnes & Noble! In addition to that, I’ve had to order three shipments of the t-shirt line. I’ve been featured on Réseau Docteur‘s Black Men in Social Work and Dr. Keith Harley’s site.

I am dedicated to serving, educating, and training the most vulnerable populations.

Equally important, I am also committed to making the most enriching learning experiences for children and families. I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I did writing the book.

A great way to overcome the stigma is to improve people’s attitude towards mental health and increase their willingness to talk about mental health struggles.

I have enjoyed reading your reviews! Here are a few reviews below:

“As a mother of four and a service member, I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with PTSD or any mental illness. Michael has shared some excellent information for parents and children. I read this book twice, first by myself and then to my two sons. As kids growing up in a dual military home, they have endured deployments and long days with at least one parent gone. Always tell your children you love them even when you have a terrible day it is essential for them to know they are loved. Thank you, Mike, for sharing this story, and I hope it helps anyone struggling with PTSD or any other mental illness. It is okay to ask for help and accept it. I will now be teaching my kids that same bedtime prayer.” ~Anonymous

“Hi Mike, Your book helped me release all the pain I was caring in my heart for over 40 years about my father. You are a Godsend, and with your writing and counseling, I know you have made a difference in family lives. You help changed mine.” ~Anonymous

“Dr. Gatson’s use of a children’s book to tackle such a tough topic is nothing short of extraordinary! Mental health issues are something that all culture’s stigmatize and many individual’s struggles with finding a way to express their thoughts and feelings and the need to seek help. Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep opens the door and allows for the topic to be discussed with children at a level in which they understand, and at a pace, the parent can effectively cope. This book is thought provoking and allows the opportunity for meaningful discourse as well as a coping mechanism for those who may not have the words to express their thoughts. This will be a book that I use in my practice with veterans and civilians alike! Thanks, Dr. Doobie and I can’t wait for the next edition.” ~Anonymous
