PAGE WHALEN

FOUNDER

I believe everyone has an important story to share. WANA’s mission helps others have the courage to speak openly about their experiences with mental health. I spent years of my life looking for help. Fighting to understand why I was “different.” Then, at 23, after a lot of therapy, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Depression and PTSD. WANA is for everyone. Sharing our experiences and struggles with others is a noble public service. You, WANAfam, are helping stop negative stigmas and increase awareness about Suicide Prevention.

MISSION

We Are No Alamo The Mental Health Podcast is dedicated to building better lives for everyone affected by MI by opening up the conversation. Our mission is to spread the word about the importance of mental health awareness and suicide prevention. We seek to build a community of acceptance, connection, and hope. Each week, this podcast provides a stigma free zone for people to share their stories and help others, especially those in crisis situations. 

BUT WHY THE NAME WE ARE NO ALAMO?

The battle of the Alamo taught the nation difficult lesson. The battle demonstrated that courage and sacrifice, despite massive odds, demonstrated a fight for change.

WE, as advocates, must be in charge of our own mental health and help others in similar situations. WANA is a grassroots organization and our mission is to fight negative stigma about mental illnesses (MI) and provide a voice for those seeking to know that they are not alone in their mental health journey. We want to create an arena where openly discussing difficult issues surrounding mental health is not perceived as taboo or “crazy,” but as an opportunity to build a strong, inclusive, community of people looking for answers and aid.
