Support Us

There are many ways to join our movement.  Together, we can create sustainable and meaningful change in the mental health community.  

Approximately 1 in 5 American adults will have a mental health condition in any given year, but less than half of them will get treatment. Help us by raising mental health awareness thereby promoting acceptance and improving our society as a whole.

Share Your Story

We recognize that mental illness impacts each individual, family and support system differently.  By sharing your story with us, you provide us and others valuable insight into your own experiences and struggles.  You can decide whether to share your story with us exclusively or give permission for it to be published to help others with a similar experience. Share Your Story


Let's reverse that trend by making it okay to talk about mental illness just like any other medical condition and seek help without fear you may lose friends, family, jobs, reputation, etc.  Our Foundation recognizes that stigma lies at the root of solitary suffering that often accompanies mental illness and believes that society must rise up to confront this issue by understanding more about mental health and ways to support those directly and indirectly impacted.
