Welcome!

Hello, everyone! Thank you for taking an interest in our Patreon page! :) We're extremely excited to start The Mental Illness Spotlight and get people talking about mental illness!

A Little About Us

Inside Our Minds was founded in March 2016 as a way to give people living with a mental illness an anonymous outlet to share their stories. We decided to focus on people with connections to the Pittsburgh area, hoping to foster a sense of community and closeness for those who tell their stories and those who read them. The idea caught on very quickly, so we began to explore new ideas to broaden the scope of Inside Our Minds... ultimately leading to this project!

The Mental Illness Spotlight fights the stigma of mental illness by featuring the experiences of people with various mental health diagnoses on a podcast. Each podcast will feature a specific diagnosis (for example, bipolar disorder) with 2-3 panelists with lived experience. Panelists will share their experiences, discuss treatments and symptoms, take listener questions, and debunk stereotypes in order to educate community members about mental illness. 

Learn more about Inside Our Minds and The Mental Illness Spotlight on our website or through social media (FacebookTwitterInstagram).

The Mental Illness Spotlight is funded in part by a Seed Award from The Sprout Fund and is fiscally sponsored by New Sun Rising

A Call to Action

Please consider becoming a monthly donor to The Mental Illness Spotlight. Even pledging $1 a month makes a difference for a small, new project like ours! We're excited to begin our journey spreading the word about fighting stigma and ending negative stereotypes, but we also want to make sure we have enough funds to continue this project for a long time. :)
