THE STORY:

I feel pretty confident saying that we all know someone who is facing mental illness. We all respect someone who is managing something we know nothing about. We all love someone who needs support. And the best way we can do that is by letting them know we have NoStigmas.

For most of my life, I've struggled with anxiety, depression and OCD. I've tried what feels like everything under the sun to "fix" myself, and what I finally learned is that I don't need to. I feel best when I stop fighting and just accept that it's part of who I am. It's nothing to be ashamed of. It doesn't mean I'm broken. It's something I will work hard to manage the rest of my life, but it doesn't define me. 

Sometimes it's more manageable than others, and most people wouldn't know unless I tell them. That's the tricky thing about mental illness - it's not always visible. I know something positive can come from my challenges; that's why I work so hard alongside NoStigmas every day to raise awareness for mental health advocacy and suicide prevention. This organization truly saves lives. When we remove shame, we can create change. 

Please consider supporting our cause, either through donating or fundraising as part of our team. Thank you for being part of the change! 

Introducing: NoStigmas Here

The NoStigmas Here mental health app will be a place for people to connect with mental health information, resources and support. It's a conduit that conveys members along their mental health journey, with a focus on self-care and community.

We're helping people learn how to practice positive mental health for themselves AND those around them. Inspired individuals, inspired community!

This app lives out our mission by creating a peer support system that is founded on the anti-stigmatization of mental health. There are no stigmas here, only support!
