Navigating the system and starting therapy can be a daunting process. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we’re excited to announce the extension of our #IYKYK campaign with four new inspiring videos. These videos offer real-life advice to demystify the process of seeking treatment and encourage those in need to start their journey toward mental wellness.

“Hearing stories from individuals who have already taken that first step to get into care can be a highly motivating way to embolden others to do the same,” said Carrie Zeisse, president and CEO of Tampa Bay Thrives. “Our research over the past year has also shown that we can further encourage that first step by demystifying the process of care itself. We share these inspiring stories of individuals who have, and continue to, utilize a portfolio of approaches to manage their mental health, as well as real-life stories of navigating the system so that getting help no longer feels so daunting and out of reach.”
