My name is Amaris Alice and I am a recovering person. One of the one in four people experiencing mental health problems at any one time.  I am just one voice and I am now thriving beyond experience of overwhelming mental distress.  I don't say this lightly; it's a big deal and it's bigger than me and everyone else and that's why this mission is so important.  Breaking down stigma is not easy but I'm attempting to escape my comfort zone to try.
