Our Mission

The mission of This Is My Brave, Inc. is to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues by sharing personal stories of individuals living successful, full lives despite mental illness through poetry, essay and original music, on stage in front of a live audience, through stories submitted and published to our blog, and via our YouTube channel.

Through the sharing of stories and experiences of those in recovery, we provide a sense of community and hope; and encourage others to share their stories. We believe that each time one of us shares our story, there’s another crack helping to break down the stigma surrounding mental illness. Right now, it's time to #LiveBrave, stand up with us to say #isharemystory and help us bring mental health issues into the spotlight because they've been in the dark too long.

We believe in the power of community. There’s strength found in people coming together to propel a movement forward which is why we created our organization.


On Friday 26th of May 2017 our intrepid cast will step into the spotlight at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre Theatre at 7pm and tell their stories.

All money raised from donations, ticket sales and sponsorships will go to helping produce the show and to Menslink, a local Canberra charity supporting young men in crises
