When my wife and I started ConquerWorry.org in 2012, it was a simple 'passion project.' Our original mission statement was to 'Create awareness of the resources that are available to those who struggle with worry, anxiety or depression.'
We are amazed at how rapidly the platform has grown over the past four years.
Today our mission is to inspire, educate and advocate for those who struggle with extreme stress or their mental health. That is a big mission and we have a team of passionate volunteers from all over the world who help with the platform's advocacy efforts. This requires dedicated leadership and I am thrilled to announce that Christy Zigweid is now the President and Chief Editor of ConquerWorry.org.
Christy is a passionate mental health advocate who has been a key driver of the platform's success. I am confident that under her leadership, this platform will grow and serve more people than I ever thought possible. If you are interested in joining her team, please reach out to us via our volunteer form: www.conquerworry.org/volunteer
As we move forward, I will still produce the Conquer Worry Podcast to bring you inspirational stories and interviews with people who are making a difference in the lives of others.

My name is Christy Zigweid. I am a writer, mother, wife and fighter of depression and anxiety. Diagnosed when I was still in high school, I have worked hard to be mentally well. I am grateful for access to care as well as a very supportive network. While I may not live well every day, I fight hard to continue on this road we call life.
I am just starting out on my journey and look to build relationships in the field of mental health as well as help raise awareness about suicide, suicide prevention, and mental illness stigma through my writing about my own personal struggles. Many of my fiction stories deal with real-life issues. And while some of my stories are only available on my website, others can be found through Amazon.
Currently, I volunteer for ConquerWorry.org as their president and chief editor, guest post designer, and guest blogger. Some of my work can be found at Conquer Worry and This is My Brave. This spring, I helped edit Conquer Worry: How to Build a Simple Daily Plan to Reduce Stress by S. Jay Coulter, which released May 31, 2015.
