Gabe Has created a positive online Facebook community support group for those living with depression and bipolar disorder to help each other manage their illness with positive coping strategies instead of just allowing for them to just have a place to vent and complain. It has given them a place to remain positive and teach others through their experiences.  — Carolyn

Michelle Hammer stands out because she not only does social media but also takes her advocacy the grassroots approach on the busy New York City streets vulnerably facing stigma face on through having conversations about schizophrenia to the public.  — Cecilia

When I was first diagnosed with schizophrenia five years ago as a college student, it was difficult finding the few schizophrenia advocates who were open about their diagnosis. There are no other advocates like Michelle Hammer out there. I am continuously impressed and inspired how she creates her own brand of advocacy as a trailblazer.  — Cecilia

Michelle Hammer is the humble, genuine, and bold brand of advocacy that the world needs. She has come so far and changed so many people’s lives (including my own), and she is still growing. I cannot wait until the world gets to hear her TEDx talk this November from the Netherlands.  — Cecilia

Watch out world! Advocates like Michelle is shattering the stigma associated with schizophrenia and showing the world what people who have schizophrenia are capable of. Together, we can change the face of schizophrenia, and Michelle is leading the way.  — Cecilia
