This Is My Brave

Goal: $5,000.00

Specific Need

Through the support of National and Local sponsors, as well as individual donors, This Is My Brave has successfully supported its volunteers and licensed organizations in producing shows from start to finish, including tasks such as selecting and paying for venues, obtaining local sponsorships, selecting storytellers, holding rehearsals and managing the events themselves. Our goal is to build upon our programming year after year in order to continually increase the number of individuals putting a name, face and story on mental illness through creative expression.


This Is My Brave’s rapid growth, coupled with the interest from individuals in additional countries to bring This Is My Brave to their side of the globe, provide an ideal, natural storyline that award-winning filmmaker Beth Murphy of Principle Pictures in Boston and her team would like to follow and turn into a full-length documentary. Alkermes has signed on as our first corporate sponsor of the feature length project, and we are seeking additional corporate sponsors and individual donors to fund the film.


The mission of This Is My Brave is to bring stories of mental illness and addiction out of the shadows and into the spotlight.


Since 2014, This Is My Brave has produced over 55 unique shows in cities across the United States featuring over 725 storytellers sharing true, personal stories on overcoming depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, psychosis, OCD, postpartum depression, borderline personality disorder, dissociative identity disorder, trichotillomania, anorexia, bulimia, sexual assault, alcoholism, substance use disorder and more.


In 2017, This Is My Brave expanded internationally with the help of mental health advocate Tim Daly who leads our non-profit organization in Canberra, Australia – This Is My Brave Australia, or TIMBA for short.
