The Mighty

The Mighty is a digital health community created to empower and connect people facing health challenges and disabilities. We have over 1 million registered users and are adding a new one every 20 seconds. Our stories and videos are viewed and shared more than 90 million times a month.

While I am a part of The Mighty’s team as a mental health contributing editor — copy-editing contributor articles on all mental health topics — I have also written my articles on my own mental health and associated stigma in the media. You can find these below. As of January 2018, I also began producing more weekly staff editorial content on The Mighty, including op-eds and content strategy.
