Ashley Sargeant, the founder of Don’tStopSargeant.com, has announced a new project to help others break free from the stigma of mental illness.
The project is a new music video, similar to the others Sargeant is known for. Her latest music videos about living with mental illness and being an early-returned missionary have garnered almost 60,000 views. With this video, she hopes to get over 100,000 views. The video will feature “12 powerful women who I have the privilege of calling my friends, including my 11-year-old niece Delia, who are all fighting to break free from the negative stigma of mental illness.”
Sargeant says, “What you see in this video will be visually impactful as you literally see us breaking through these very real stigmas.”
However, Sargeant needs your help to complete the project. With the production costs of her videos ever rising, Sargeant is hoping to raise $2,000 by October 23, 2015. You can donate any amount through her official Kickstarter campaign. Click here to learn more about this project and how you can support it.
