Active Minds will now have a growing home page on The Mighty and appear on many stories on the site, allowing us to get many more people involved with our organization.

The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder, mental illness and disability. Here’s an example of the kind of stories on The Mighty: What It’s Like to Have ‘High-Functioning’ Anxiety, by Sarah Schuster.
