We believe that mental health and hygiene should be mainstream, without stigma and a part of everyone's health plan.

About us

Lack of Treatment

Mental health, disorders, diseases and hygiene have long been ignored causing shame or embarrassment to the point that
many do not seek treatment or may not even be allowed to seek treatment based on family culture.


I lost my father to suicide when I was 19, and he, 55 years old. He had anxiety and depression that was likely never diagnosed until late in life and his treatment may have been too little too late. Out of shame, my family said he died of a heart attack.


In 2013, while running the Boston Marathon, I was involved in a traumatic event that left me with PTSD, a widespread mental health disorder ubiquitous in the active and veteran military. PTSD is a treatable disorder.


Mental health and its management of it has shaped my entire life, and not only must we endure the event or illness, but the aftermath...and this can change the trajectory of a person's life significantly.


There are many incredibly effective emerging programs for treatment of mental health.


Consider preventative therapies for mental health as we do with other illness and disease.

"In 2020, I began going live on Facebook each morning around 8am to do a live breath work exercise or visualization to help my community have a little structure and calm in an uncertain time. I had intended to do it once, but got a few texts and emails thanking me, and letting me know how helpful it had been. I kept it up for the next week, and more support and feedback came in...so I kept going. I continued Mindful Minutes for the next 14 months.

As May is mental health awareness month, and the month in which I lost my dad to suicide, I decided to run the Boston marathon course, a race he'd run many times before it was mainstream (and there we're no gels or sports drinks!). I wanted to raise awareness, have people discuss mental illness, suicide, and PTSD, but many people wanted to donate money to the cause.

In 2022 I again ran the course to raise awareness as well as funds, and have been joined and supported by many amazing friends and family members along the way. With this support and endless encouragement, I created a charitable organization, and a run team with a mission. To promote, support, develop and pay for mental health and mindset programs. I believe mental health should be mainstream, without stigma and a part of everyone's health plan."
