The 'Shine Again' video is here!
Our goal is to use the inspiration of music to share the message of hope and healing for people struggling with depression and similar mental health issues.
I’ve been there, I still go there at times and I understand.
We need to spread the word that there is help available. You are not alone and even if you’re feeling lost, please know your precious being here matters to this world.
Our mission with this music video is to raise awareness, heal lives & change mental health stigmas by providing a message of hope to people as well as access to resources they need for wellness.
Make a sign with one sentence about your story. You can type it out, write it out or even add pretty pictures & colors if that’s your thing
Sample Text : I struggle with _________________ & I’m gonna #ShineAgain (fill in the blank - depression, anxiety, PTSD, Bipolar - whatever is going on for you right now).
Take your picture (either selfie or anonymous) but make your text for someone else. For example: For my _______ , I know you are struggling with _________. Know you are loved / supported. I believe in you - You will #ShineAgain.
Take a selfie with your sign, or if you want to stay anonymous, cover your face with the sign, just take a picture with your hand, or take it with a beloved object like a flower or instrument to show your beautiful spark. Whatever you're comfortable with.
Remember to include the #ShineAgain hashtag or the text "I’m Gonna #ShineAgain"
By changing the conversation about mental health & creating a community where people can feel supported, loved and understood. Together we can Empower each other and those we Love to #SHINEAGAIN.
Here are some sample signs you can simply fill in the blanks - download & print here.
In the spirit of change, I recently made a pledge with a charity called ChangeDirection.org. Their purpose is to help people recognize the signs of depression as well as offer resources for healing and suicide prevention. A percentage of your proceeds to support "Shine Again" will go to Charity.
Words cannot express my gratitude for your contributions in helping people to #Shine Again
