WOYM seeks to combat the stigma of mental illness. We believe that the best way to do this is to have one conversation at a time, addressing mental illness and engaging others in conversation about their experiences.
It all started when CEO/Founder, Theresa was in Harlem walking down the street:
"I just felt like, everyone on the street looked really...stressed. They looked like they had tons of stuff on their mind. They weren't present." They weren't in the moment, their minds were elsewhere... I felt like I wanted to know and I wanted to get their minds away from where they were. So I was like "one day I'm gonna come out here with a sign that says "what's on your mind?'"
