“I’ve seen firsthand—with family members and friends—the real challenges and pain endured by those living and caring for people with mental illness. DBSA is a beacon of light and hope for the people who struggle with their own mental illness and the loved ones who support them. I hope that I can make a difference in furthering DBSA’s mission as science makes strides to provide more options for treatments.”
