Grey Matters - Next Steps
In November of 2017, I began a journey across the U.S. in order to gather stories about mental health in America. I've learned so much, and I can’t wait to share the stories with you.
I took this journey with the intent of creating a book, and I’ve gone as far as I can without additional support.
The book will be a beautiful, coffee-table sized book that features stories from about a hundred people with lived experience. It also features subsections about important issues that impact the mental health of Americans like poverty, pharma, war, and the criminalization of mental illness that currently exists in this country.
It will take about $17,000 to get this book over the finish line. This includes money for various publishing services, such as editing, project management, design consultation, proofreading, and the first round of books.
I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to go about raising the funds to complete this project. I may go the Kickstarter route again. I’ll let you all know if that’s the path I take. For now, I’m interested in hearing from organizations or individuals who may be willing to help me bring this book to light through financial contributions. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can discuss the details.\
Beginning this week, I’m going to start sharing some of the stories of the people that I met during my journey. Look for the tag #GreyMatters on related stories.
I’m truly grateful for your continued support.
