Community Stories

One recommendation from our Mental Health Task Force was to take action to remove the stigma surrounding mental health. To do so, we launched a video collection project where members of our community members share their stories addressing mental health.

Recently, several community members agreed to share their story on camera. Additional stories will be added to this page and shared with our community sporadically in the coming months to help raise awareness and increase conversation around mental health.

Kate's Story

Kate is a mom of three kids in Massachusetts. When her son was born with hemophilia after having no previous family history of a bleeding disorder, Kate got tested, and learned she, too, had hemophilia. She blamed herself for passing this condition on to her children.

But once she connected with NEHA, she formed relationships with others that gave her the vital support, comfort and guidance she needed.
