Hi I'm one of the authors of this page. my personal story about why I'm so passionate about mental health.

A number of years ago I joined a youth club while I was there I made a friend and for the sake of privacy I will call them "George". In the time that I was graced with George's company. I found out that during our time there George had developed depression and no one noticed because we didn't know the signs and George didn't know how to talk about it. In a span of about a year George had developed many symptoms of depression and even attempted several times. In the research of this project I also found with the rise especially with young leaders who are more often than not stressed balancing responsibilities and their own lives I was astounded by the number of people with the same experiences as George, who kept acting like everything was fine unable to cope in many situations or if they could find help it usually cost them a lot and they were unable to fulfill certain goals and responsibilities do to their conditions constant pulls on their purse strings. I have now devoted much of my time advocating Anonymously to help with depression and anxiety but I have left out another mental health trauma that plagues those around me.

PTSD has harmed much of the service members of my family and friends and in some cases torn them apart I have added this onto this comment because even though this issue is serious people joke and make memes about the real life consequences of Post Traumatic Stress, probably due to a lack of understanding, the hardships it causes, or understanding the struggles these people may face but it makes it harder than it already is to help those who deal with the stress it puts on their minds every day.

I hope others comment their Questions, Suggestions, and their own personal stories here to help us with combating this crisis we all face and hopefully never have to face alone.

Donors normally take in contributions from those people and companies that are very rich, and with all that wealth comes power. The Campaigns are going to support the interest of the people and companies that contributed the most, making the middle class citizens voice not heard. See more
Offer a tax credit to individuals who make a contribution. Although such a tax credit will not solve our entire campaign finance problem, it represents one positive step to empower American voters and increase their participation in our political system. If an individual is already owed a tax refund, the refundable credit will be added to the amount of the individual's refund. See more
