Lia Salvatierra’s Speech at the Third Annual BC2M Gala on November 9, 2015 in NYC

Mental Illness. Two words. Many assumptions. Two words, synonymous with guilt, shame and stigma. Two words, misunderstood. Two words, silenced. That is why I am here today to speak to this silence. I am here to share my story. By adding this story to the collage created by many, I aim to change perceptions and create awareness.

    Your father is looking through those pink
    Clouds with pride in you. We need more
    people who understand that a disease is not
    a choice.
    Best to you,
