My name is Harold Grimes. I served in the Navy from January 1982 to January 1988. I am currently treated for PTSD, major depression and bipolar disorder. While being treated with other veterans, I was introduced to photography as a therapy. I have been taking pictures for a little over a year with this group. I have been fortunate to win a couple awards and be shown in several galleries. While going out in crowded situations is still problematic, when I am with the group things are much easier. I have found that whether it is photography or other arts, doing it with friends makes life much easier.
