CaringCrowd knows that progress takes generosity, collaboration, and commitment. That's why Johnson & Johnson is pledging to match all donations (up to $250 per person per project) until we reach our $460,000 cap. All active projects are eligible for matched donations, so the benefits can be widespread.
I'm the Executive Director of NAMI Florida, the state's largest advocacy organization for individuals and families affected by mental illness. I've been a newspaper reporter for outlets including the USA Today network, an advoacate for nurses and pediatric therapists, and a communications and policy consultant.
My true passion is mental health policy and advocacy. I've had loved ones with mental illness, and I've also experienced depression and anxiety. I'm proud to be stigma free and being a voice to help individuals and families rise above their own challenges with the illness.
