Our Story

We are focused on ending mental health stigma, and creating a comfortable environment for open conversations about mental health issues. As an organization, we have come to understand the importance of stories in challenging inbred notions about mental health issues, especially when the stories come from those with lived experience. This is what our campaigns revolve around and we can already see the change in attitude that has occurred as a result of this.

We also work to increase awareness of mental health issues, by providing simplified and easy to read resources both offline and via social media (where the bulk of our target population can be found). We also encourage people to seek help as soon as it is needed, and serve to connect young people to appropriate mental health services/professionals.

We are well within the time of the Social Media, and these apps have come to serve as the platform for people to share their lives publicly, in real time. In these times where suicide rates are rising across the world, we have to now recognize that Social Media is the New Suicide Note, and we all have to listen.

Likewise, there is a...
Helping kids and teens make the right choices about alcohol and drugs are very important. Some surveys reveal that kids who feel comfortable talking to their parents about alcohol are less likely to indulge in those habits.
“Attention seeker” “I’m also in your shoes” “I had it worse but here I am” “I failed several times but nothing happened. I’m still alive” “I have a bad marriage too, so what’s your problem” “You can’t go through with it, weakling!” “You’re just ungrateful for life” “You’re not the only one feeling the bad...
