Mental health issues have been present in our family for a long time. Kara's journey with mental illness began 10 years ago when she was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Despite meeting with numerous doctors, psychiatrists, and therapists, and completing various tests and treatments, mental illness remains a daily factor for her, as well as 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. The determination and drive necessary to rise above these dark burdens is incomparable. Having experienced the murky waters of mental health treatment, it is clear that more research needs to be done on the causes and treatments of mental illness. Bern and Kara are raising their voices as advocates for the many people in their lives suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, autism, and other mental issues. Please consider donating in order to further brain and behavior research to find a cure for mental illnesses, as well as trail conservancy.
