Welcome to Respite deals with serious topics such as mental illness and the effects of trauma. While this experience is meant for entertainment only, it is our intention to use our platform to promote empathy towards those who are struggling mentally, and to end stigma against such illnesses.
Mental health affects all of us. An astonishing one out of five U.S. adults experience a mental illness at some point in their lives, with a multitude of symptoms that not only challenge individuals and their families, but communities as a whole. Those who choose to seek help should be applauded and supported when they reach out to manage these difficulties.
We believe that change begins with the individual. We encourage our audience to take action in their daily lives by showing compassion and supporting those who may be struggling. Working towards mental well-being should be normalized and celebrated.
We are currently seeking out a mental health organization that deals with complex, trauma based mental illnesses that we can partner with. In doing so, we will encourage people to donate and support them. For those who may be seeking help, or would like to find out more information, we look forward to providing inciteful and accurate resources in the near future.
