Our Mission

 

 

 

Our mission is to encourage those who have lived with mental illness and those who have supported loved ones with a mental illness to speak openly about their experiences and to reassure others that it can- and will- get brighter. 


What is the It Gets Brighter campaign?

The It Gets Brighter campaign aims to challenge misconceptions around mental illness and letting sufferers know that they are not alone. By encouraging people to speak openly about their experiences and what has helped them, we believe that we can inspire others with the hope that it will get brighter.

What is the effect of stigmatization?

As many as one in four people will suffer from a mental illness, yet it is still considered an uncomfortable topic of conversation. We want to change that.Having a mental illness is difficult enough without having to worry about the silence and shame one experiences within one’s family, friendship group, and community. If our communities become more accepting, we can help those of us with a mental illness to better come to terms with it, and to seek the help and support they need.

Why ‘Brighter’?

 

Though we understand the deterioration and devastation marking the course of mental illness for many, we want to emphasise the tremendous scope for recovery when support and treatment are attained, and when they are separated from stigma and taboo. The ‘It Gets Brighter’ wording was chosen deliberately to inspire hope and challenge the perception, common to sufferers of mental illness, that the darkness will go on forever.
