We are founded on the belief that there are many reasons to live.
1 in 5 people struggle with mental illness. Yet there is an immense stigma that surrounds even the phrase “mental health”. Why? Shouldn’t it be just as important as physical health?
Our mission is to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness while spreading hope to those that are struggling. 13 Reasons to Fly also advocates for continual mental health care reform so that recovery can be equitable and accessible to all people.
By sharing our vulnerabilities, we give space to emphasize “it’s okay to not be okay”. From there, recovery is possible.
