Breaking Barriers: A Mental Health Discussion Series

Have you noticed there is a stigma around talking about mental health?

Have you wanted to speak out about what you are experiencing but don’t want to burden others?

Have you wanted to check on someone, but didn’t know how?

My hope is that this series will help make talking about difficult topics easier. My hope is that you will watch this video by yourself, with a friend, a loved one, etc. My hope is that we can begin to break the barriers around what holds us back as a society from valuing the mental health experience. My hope is that this will help inspire conversations and provide encouragement.
