At Say It Brave, we believe healing happens when we stop hiding the parts of us that aren’t strong and perfect, and we bring our humanity fully into the light. This movement was created for and by people with mental health issues. In a world obsessed with "keeping it all together," we honor the courage it takes to show up and be seen as we are.
Say It Brave brings authenticity to mental health conversations and provides you with resources for your fight for mental wellness and against stigma. We deliver a dose of hope to your inbox every Friday, answering the community's questions. We offer monthly virtual events with nationally recognized psychologist, Dr. Ashley Solomon, and National Recovery Advocate, Shannon Kopp. And we are constantly sharing free resources and support groups to help you in braving your own journey.
We invite you to join us and add your light to this beautiful community!

When Compare Meets Despair: Learning to Transform Envy into a Tool for Growth
Thursday, July 25th – 8:00 pm EST
Despite being universal, the emotion of envy often gets labeled bad and shameful. As a result, many of us reject it, stuff it down, and hide from the world. But pushing away envy can lead to isolation and depression, and it stops us from using it as a tool in our own growth. Yes, we said it: envy can be transformative!
In this Say It Brave event, we’re going to delve into what we can do when societal shame tempts us to hide our true emotions and specific ways we can:
-Find the courage to experience envy long enough to learn from it
-Let our sources of envy signal to us what is missing in our lives and inspire actionable steps
-Create more space inside for universal experiences of “good” and “bad” emotions
