Never give up on someone with a mental illness. When "I" is replaced with "We", Illness becomes Wellness.

Shannon L. Adler

The goal of This Is My Reality is to provide an extensive cross-section of information on accessing support, shared lived experiences and items of interest to my peers diagnosed with a mental illness, their family, friends and the general public.

Through my services and this website, it is my desire to

increase awareness and understanding of mental illness,

whilst reducing stigma.
