THE STORY:

I have suffered from mental illness for 20 years and the purpose of this is a simple one: to silence the stigma that is attached to mental illness. It is not just a bad day, a bad moment and although, many factors can trigger depression, the illness lays deep beneath the surface and does not discriminate. So, what can we do? We can organize, educate and let our voices be heard that more needs to be done in order to treat those who suffer from any mental illness. We must not stay silent any longer. My mother attempted suicide and my aunt committed suicide, I myself have battled with this and have survived but, its a daily struggle to try to mix in with a society that for the most part, just expects you to "snap out of it". The goal of this page is to raise not only the funds to help treat people who are inflicted with this disease, but also awareness so that we, as a society, can understand this issue.
