Meet Jay Gaylen

Hi my name is Jay Gaylen and I'm a dad. I'm a father of a child who has Reactive Attachment Disorder, Bipolar 2 and ADHD. And for the past 6-7 years I've been teaching a program, couple of programs actually, for NAMI- The National Alliance for Mental Illness, to help parents who have gone through what I've gone through seek out the services they need and just get the help they need to survive it all. Hobbies. A little bit about my background. I spent 35 years in the advertising/marketing business. I own a drum company of all things. That's my biggest hobby. I put a lot of time and effort in to it. And it really is a hobby because it doesn't make any money, but we are known all over the world as the best so we're real proud of that. Other than that, I'm a workaholic, so that's kind of how I pass my time. And a certified personal trainer. I like to be in shape.

Jay Gaylen


Jay Gaylen is the dad of a now 22-year old daughter who was diagnosed as a teen with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), Bi-Polar II and ADHD. Jay and his wife, Renu, adopted Joslyn from Thailand. The process started when Joslyn was just nine months old. It took nearly two years to complete the adoption process — a good reason why Joslyn is a RAD kid. They sought help from numerous resources before discovering NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). Jay began lecturing for NAMI’s Parents and Teachers as Allies program while being trained to teach the Family to Family and Basics courses.
