We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership that will bring our mental health resources focused on connecting young people to effective care in front of The Mighty‘s wide-reaching readership. We’ve just kicked off a home page on The Mighty and will appear on many stories on the site, allowing readers to connect to supportive resources and information about psychosis and related disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder, mental illness and disability. More than half of Americans are facing some form of serious health condition or medical issue. They want more than information. They want to be inspired. They want to be heard. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges, offering a powerful punch against stigma that keeps far too many of us from living the lives we deserve to live.
We had a chance to spend time with The Mighty team this past month and were so impressed by their vision of a more compassionate world through storytelling and harnessing the power of digital media. Their mission is so clearly intertwined with ours: to help young people and their families connect to valuable treatment, brain health education and hope earlier in innovative ways. Through this partnership, we’re excited to be able to reach even more people.
