THE STORY:

As a childhood survivor of domestic violence, I have always lived with a quiet anxiety – an innate paradox to the roaring loudness often ill perceived by my senses. This intense anxiety coupled with residual PTSD held me prisoner with the secret of my abuse as a weapon against healthy relationships. From the outside looking in it was a perfect existence – a soaring career, exciting friends, etc. –  but it was a beautiful charade. Inside I was alone; crippled with anxiety and unable to share my story.

In 2010 I was asked to join NoStigmas – and soon thereafter helped the grassroots movement devoted to mental health awareness and advocacy to become an official 501(c)(3) public charity. Over the past 5 years, our community has grown to include nearly 50,000 individuals affected by suicide and mental illness. New weekly programming includes educational articles, awareness videos, peer support training modules and community member stories which are focused on empowering others to become mental health advocates for themselves, their communities and the cause.

Today, I serve as Vice President on the Board of Directors for NoStigmas. I believe in the power of connecting a network of empowered, inspired, and enlightened individuals and am excited to be able to share with you the concept for the NoStigmas Here app. Your donations are an invaluable step in helping the NoStigmas community connect on a global scale. Please see additional details below and let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for supporting the next chapter of NoStigmas, and remember – you are not alone. -AH
