This podcast features the work of Jennifer Marshall and Anne Marie Ames who started the non-profit organization This Is My Brave to help people struggling with mental illness share their story.
'This is My Brave' Information:
From their website: 'Our mission is to ignite and actively promote―through community programs and social media― a positive, supportive national conversation about mental illness for those who live with, or love someone who lives with, a mental illness. Through the sharing of stories and experiences of those in recovery, we expect to provide a sense of community and hope; and encourage others to share their stories. We believe that each time one of us shares our story, there’s another crack helping to break down the stigma of mental illness. Right now, it's time to be brave and bring mental health issues into the spotlight because they've been in the dark too long.'
