“The greatest connection made is through lived experience, the greatest lived experiences are made through social connection.
Coming together for this amazing experience and having people from all walks of life share their Mental health and Wellbeing journey is a huge step for our cause and will have a positive impact on those that still suffer in silence so that we can open and normalise the conversation of one’s Mental Health journey.

“I got involved in this project with Megan after going through clinical depression and knowing the impact it had on those around me and how hard it was to speak out. I have a passion for mental health awareness and I believe this book confronts issues and tries to break the stigma around mental health problems. The people within this book are from different backgrounds with their own unique stories, reflecting that mental health issues can affect anyone”
“When I was asked to be involved with Be Brave Be Bold Be You I was thrilled to share my passion of exercise and how amazing getting that endorphin flow can make you feel.

“It took 10 years and near breakdown for me to realise that I never needed to be ashamed of my illness. I overcame it and wanted to be proof to others that no matter how long the journey we can all come out the others side the best version of ourselves. So when Megan mentioned Be Brave Be Bold Be You, I basically begged her to be apart of something so proudly stating,
DON’T EVER BE AFRAID TO BE EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE!
