On May 15th, six of us will take our first of over 5 million steps to create a national conversation about mental illness. We are not a group of mental health professionals, but rather a reflection of mental illness. Our personal stories represent addiction, bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety, among others. We know firsthand the barriers that exist between mental illness and mental health. Most importantly, we know that taking the first step to overcome those barriers is often the toughest decision one ever makes. We invite you to come take that first step with us and let’s break down these barriers together, one step at a time.
