In Episode 05 of the Charity Charge Show, the founder of Charity Charge chats with Page Whalen, founder of We Are No Alamo.
Today, people living with serious mental health concerns still experience social stigmas and negative misconceptions. But the fact is, people can expect a better quality of life than ever before. Medications have improved, new evidence-based therapies have developed, and organizations like We Are No Alamo (WANA) are building initiatives to bring renewed awareness surrounding mental health.
WANA promotes the engagement of open and honest conversations about mental health. A growing amount of research shows that offering positive support to those suffering with MI, compared to promoting lifestyle and behavioral changes, helps those struggling live healthier and more productive lives. WANA seeks to build a community of acceptance and connection. To help shape this future, WANA started a podcast! The podcast provides a “stigma free zone” for people to open up about their mental health struggles and share their stories, while also providing mental health information and resources.
WANA is dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by mental illness. We strive to shape a future where all people affected by MI can experience hope, recovery and wellness in a world free of stigma.
