What does a butterfly mean to you?

It can start with a conversation - an interaction that can lead to a transformation in someone’s life.  The building of trust… the breaking of stigmas… the creation of a butterfly effect. By taking action and offering hope, even in just one child at a time, we can help change the course of the future, providing life-altering support that lasts into adulthood.

Just as a butterfly symbolizes our unlimited potential through the support and love we give to one another, it reminds us that our hope can be bigger than our fears.

What does a butterfly mean to you?

"I want everyone struggling with mental health to feel that they are not alone and that there are many people open to listening. My hope for this campaign is to build connections and bridges of understanding so families dealing with mental health can take flight and together we can destigmatize mental health."
