WE WANA SHAPE THE FUTURE BY TALKING ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS (MI) AND REDUCE NEGATIVE STIGMA ASSOCIATED WITH MENTAL HEALTH!
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.
Remember, we want you to stay with us and YOU ARE NOT ALONE BECAUSE WE ARE NO ALAMO!
WHAT DOES WE ARE NO ALAMO MEAN?
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.
The story about We Are No Alamo The Mental Health Podcast begins in a psychiatric hospital. Two roommates misread a hand drawn sign on the wall written in multicolored pencils as, “You Are Not Alone.” But the new friends interpreted the words as, “You Are No Alamo.” After realizing their hilarious mistake, “You Are No Alamo” became the rallying cry for other patients in the hospital.
WE, as advocates, must be in charge of our own mental health and help others in similar situations. WANA is a grassroots organization and goal is to fight negative stigmas around 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.
