Through the non-profit foundation, they work to break down and End The Stigma around mental health and mental illness. In Las Vegas, she has started four support groups facilitated by her therapist for teens struggling with mental illness. Online, the foundation shares educational resources, messages of hope, and their #NoFilter stories.
