Thank You

The Makeshift Movement thanks those in the community who have so generously shared their stories with us. We realize these are very personal and intimate moments in their lives and the lives of their loved ones; and we know how vulnerable it can be to bare one's soul. But know that these stories—of pain, of triumphs, of fears—have already helped make a difference in alleviating the stigma associated with mental illness, suicide and substance abuse. It is only through continued support and openness that our community will grow stronger.
