My name is Mike Veny and I am the founder of Transforming Stigma™. As a person who struggles with mental health challenges on a daily basis, I am committed to sharing my experience with you and let you know that it’s okay to just be you. In fact, I believe that your mental health challenges are your genius in disguise. As part of my recovery and work, I am a mental health speaker at mental health events throughout the world. Sharing my story and feeling vulnerable never gets easier, but I know that I am helping people who are like me. This is why I do it.
As a person who struggles with mental health challenges, I've been working hard to give people like myself hope and transform the stigma surrounding mental health into strength.
