MAITLAND, FL—Author Million Heir-Williams seeks to inform and encourage military families living with mental illness in Military Mom on a Mission: An Advocate for Mental Health ($32.00, paperback, 9781631295393; $7.99, e-book, 9781631295409).


When Heir-Williams welcomed her son home from his military service in Iraq, she was relieved and grateful to see that his body was intact.  Sadly, however, the experience had left indelible marks on his mind for which she was unprepared.  In this book, she shares the new normal her family came to accept and offers advice to others with similar mountains before them.


“It is very important to me to share with others who are dealing with mental illness, specifically as it relates to the military community. I share my experience as a mother who assisted her son who was without a voice during PTSD, Psychosis, Paranoid Schizophrenia and other mental disorders,” said Heir-Williams.


Million Heir-Williams was born in Glen Cove, New York. She worked in management for Kaiser Permanente for twenty years before becoming a vice president of a chamber of commerce as well as a county commissioner. Effectual Life Coaching is her current business as a certified life coach.  Additionally, she is pursuing a B.S in Psychology from Liberty University Online. She and her husband, Dr. Stephen J. Williams reside in southern California with their two fur babies. They share a blended family of eight children and fifteen grandchildren.
