Below you can read a note from our co-founder, Diane Orley, as Mental Health Awareness month comes to a close. 

We are without a doubt living in a darker world… one that most have not lived in before.

With a loss of trust in the world as a safe place, a loss of certainty about healthcare, education, crime and employment, lingering anxieties plague many of us, even as parts of the world are opening up.

Yet after so much loss, our search must be for a sense of meaning and purpose, even in these dark times.

We need to look to the future with hope and possibility.

As I am an optimist by nature, I try to do some of these each day:

  • Be grateful everyday for something.
  • Connect with people who help keep my “flame” burning bright.
  • Take a walk everyday. Be with nature and use the walk to listen to a book, podcast or catch up with a friend. 
  • Cook a healthy meal. This helps me relax and I feel accomplished by nourishing myself and others with healthy food that I’ve prepared.
  • Volunteer. There are so many opportunities to help others. Someone wise said that the way to experience happiness is to forget your “self”.

It is springtime and with that comes renewal and hope for better days ahead. Spring represents rebirth. Flowers blooming, babies being born, the sun shining more. 


Find a friend who makes you laugh. Watch a comedy.
It is the best medicine, and reminds us of our humanity!
“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter” - E.E. Cummings
