Michael is a nationally known award-winning advocate survivor (The Surviving Spirit) addressing the issues of trauma, abuse and mental health concerns through public speaking and his music. He notes that these three major health problems cover a wide variety of issues and we want to reach out to those who have known that pain and suffering. "We want to extend our invite to their loved ones, friends, co-workers and to the greater public," he says, "to help create awareness on how those health issues affect all of us." Michael has spoken at the National Press Club, the United Nations, The State Department and Georgetown University on the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children and adults and he has appeared on many TV, radio and Internet shows - he was part of the Oprah Winfrey Shows that addressed the issues of males sexually abused as children.
