People gather to share experiences with mental illness through creative new show

Share: FacebookTwitterEmail

Based in Virginia, This Is My Brave is a “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.” In their creative new show of the same title, performers use song, spoken word and even rap to express their experiences with mental illness. Fox 5 News spoke with some of the show’s participants and creators: watch the video to learn more about This Is My Brave.

    While I applaud the purpose of destigmatizing mental illness, “brave” is a common stereotype thrown at people with disabilities in a way that can often silence their fear, anger, sorrow. Not really hip on the title, but love the message.
