How To Support RUYS

First, I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the amazing response we’ve already received from our grassroots movement dedicated to helping raise awareness of Mental Illness. Our mission is to create an open honest dialogue about an epidemic in our country that is still clouded in taboo and stigmas. Scars from self-harm, cutting, NSSID, drug/violent/sexual abuse, and suicide attempts are often uncomfortable conversations that are easier kept in the dark because shame keeps those suffering in silence.

Our goal is to shine a light on these issues and offer a service designed to help bring people on a path to healing. I’m overwhelmed and so grateful at the number of fans, family, friends, and just the general public who have shared their stories with me and asked: What can I do? How can I get involved? How can I donate?

Thank You, But No Donations Please

We currently are not asking for donations or soliciting money from any outside sources. Dr. Rivkin and I have worked very hard to create a self-sustaining system with the help of incredible people and companies who have so selflessly donated their time, services, and products to Roll Up Your Sleeves.

Dr. Rivkin and I have personally met with the decision-makers at some of the most reputable medical supply companies and they have graciously agreed to supply the needed materials for RUYS at no cost. If we get to a point where funding is needed, we promise we will let you know at that time. But do know that my heart goes out to all of you individually who have offered, thank you.

How Else Can I Help?

• Educate yourself about the disease that is Mental Illness.

• If yourself or someone you know is suffering in silence, start an open and honest dialogue with someone you trust.

• Reach out for help. You are not alone. There are people and resources available to you, please use them. Visit our resources page for more information.

• If you’re a survivor, be an advocate. Please share your stories and use your voice to help those who are still suffering understand that with the right resources it can and does get better.

• Be a part of the dialogue. Educate those suffering from Mental Illness that it is not a death sentence, you deserve better, you are worthy of happiness and living a fulfilling life.

• I’m calling on all of you to be courageous, to step into your fear, and not fall back into the safety of your disease.

• If you have a platform and would like to support and spread the word about Roll Up Your Sleeves, we would greatly appreciate it!
