The impact of the This Is My Brave experience was … profound. Participating in the show made me feel like I could speak up for myself and love myself without shame.

Alyssa is just one of hundreds of brave individuals who shared powerful, inspiring stories on stage because of YOUR support. This season is all about the joy of giving. Today, we ask you to give a gift to This Is My Brave and help us share more stories on more stages.

YOU can help end the stigma around mental health. Your gift creates an empowering community for our future brave storytellers.

Thank You for your support!!

It is our mission to encourage people to talk openly about mental illness through poetry, essay and original music, and your gift will help us end the stigma surrounding mental health disorders allowing more people to reach out for help. You can provide the stage, the lights, and the microphone. You can be a part of our movement through your gift on Giving Tuesday.

Storytelling Saves Lives and we appreciate your support!
