They fight the stigma of mental illness through social media. This past May they continued fighting the stigma of mental illness by staging a theater presentation of essays, poems, and music by people living with mental illness. It was so popular not only are they doing it again in 2015 but two other cities are staging their own TIMB shows.  — Anita
