This Is My Brave is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which provides a community and platform for people living with mental illness to speak out in an effort to end the stigma associated with mental health disorders. Our mission is to ignite and actively promote―through actions 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. It’s time to be brave and bring mental health issues into the spotlight because they’ve been in the dark too long.
Since our inaugural show on May 18th, 2014 in Arlington, VA, we’ve produced six unique productions, each of which included readings of touching personal essays, original music performances and electric poetry. Everyone has a story and each performance showcases incredible tales of inspiration and hope.
We believe in the power of community. There’s strength found in people coming together to propel a movement forward which is why we created our organization.
