Who We Are

We aspire to be a voice by providing a real-life narrative of what it’s like to have a mental illness and be the caregiver of someone battling a mental illness.

Our mission is to raise awareness, educate, promote early intervention, end suicide and the stigma associated with mental health, and be a voice for those “Suffering in Silence.”

“The National Alliance on Mental Illness estimates that one in five people live with some sort of mental disorder or disease. Despite the fact that the average age of early signs of mental illness is 14, most individuals don’t seek help until adulthood. Underlining the seriousness is the fact that 60 percent of high school students with mental illness don’t graduate.”
