I believe truthtelling and compassion will help end mental health stigma.

If you’re reading this, you’re wanting to be part of the fight. You want to end mental health stigma with your team, classmates, employees, church members, everyone in your circle.

You want to know how you can support your loved one suffering from anxiety.

Or your partner living with bipolar disorder.

Or your student who says they’re finding it hard to show up to anything.

There are no easy answers or quick fixes. But there are false narratives we get to unlearn. There are stories waiting to be heard. There is the compassion we’ll challenge ourselves to tap into do life with someone who is suffering.

People are more than their diagnosis. So much more than the shame they often carry when living with a mental illness. I’ve learned this during my own personal journey, and I want to share that with you.

There is so much work to be done. Together we can take a heart-centered approach to ending the stigma and fueling the healing.
