Mental illness is no joke, and we strive every day to motivate, inspire, and provide the tools to not only overcome your own struggles, but to support others in their journeys as well. We believe that each person has a story to share. And every story has the power to change a life.



We all have a unique story to share. Stories of hardship, triumph, love, loss. Whether sharing personally or anonymously, we provide a platform for you to express yourself openly, and free from judgment. Check out some of the stories on our Blog.


Stay educated on conversations taking place around mental illness. Being aware enables us all to have more intelligent conversations, and to continue to progress towards a world without stigma.

About two-thirds of the ladies are here and have seen/read the newsletter & poem. One woman cried. She has had a crappy week, and was really on edge, looking forward to a few days with other crafters. She said your poem hit a nerve and she broke down. Just loved it, and it made her feel good.

I want to thank you both for the Challenge the Storm bracelet and accompanying poem. Both those, as well as the movement you have started, truly touch me beyond words.  I have fought for my life during some very dark days over the years, and the positivity and support that you are bringing to people is just what this world needs more of. You’re in my heart, and I can’t wait to see more of the joy that this movement brings to others as it grows.

Glad to be a part of this initiative! It’s a great lifestyle that you are promoting and I will do my best to share the message!

In life, when we are injured, we feel pain twice; the first pain is the pain from the actual injury, and the second pain is the pain we experience from knowing we’re injured. We can’t control the first pain, but we can control the second. If other people want to think you’re crazy because they lack compassion or education, that’s their decision, but it doesn’t have to paint how we feel about ourselves. It’s okay to have a mental illness – just like it’s okay to have cancer or irritable bowel. Instead of hating ourselves or being embarrassed about our condition, we need to practice radical self-acceptance and love ourselves.
