https://thisismybrave.org/ - our mission is to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues by sharing personal stories of individuals living successful, full lives despite mental illness through poetry, essay and original music, on stage in front of a live audience, through stories submitted and published to our blog, and via our YouTube channel. We are working on several new teen initiatives like a new podcast as well as a new documentary, Brave High, all focused on teen mental health.  We recently launched This Is My Brave Ambassadors to engage with teenage students across the country to change the culture surrounding mental health in their high schools and are now accepting applications on-line on our website for this program.
