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 Brither' wording was chosen deliberately to inspire hope and challenge the perception, common to sufferes of mental illness, that the darkness will go on forever.
