DiTondo was at Faust Studios in Prague, CZ working on the Commercial Zone and other matters projects during the final months of her sister Linda’s life and is donating her collection in Linda’s memory.

“Linda who died on 8 April 2015 struggled with depression and bipolar disorder amongst other things. There is no doubt in my mind Dr. Vos will help many in England, throughout the United Kingdom and across the world who battle with mental health-related issues. How I wish Linda might have met him. She might not have suffered as she did throughout her life,” says DiTondo.

“I have had the opportunity to work with and have gotten to know a number of extremely talented psychologists and psychiatrists in my professional and personal life including those who treated Linda.  None approached mental health the way Dr. Vos does,” she adds.

“Dr. Vos teaches irrespective of the root cause of one’s mental health struggles:  Whether it is due to a disease of the mind or a serious physical condition such as cancer or a personal crisis such as the break up of a family or a financial issue such as being made redundant or the death of a loved one we can still live a parallel authentic, meaningful and satisfying life,” explains DiTondo.
