Our Network Inspires Conversations

The Stability Network is making an impact in over 200 cities and counting around the world.

The Ripple Effect

Our Stability Leaders share inspiring stories of their recovery in their communities and workplaces. This changes how people with similar challenges see their own capabilities and opportunities. People who can see a path toward a better future are more likely to be open about their struggles and seek support. They may also decide to share their stories and engage in conversations with others.  

While our first priority is to ensure people with mental health challenges thrive, we have our sights set on a longer-term, transformative goal. Like we’ve seen with other social movements – from Marriage Equality to #MeToo – when more people tell their stories, public opinion shifts.

The conversations started by our Leaders inspire more public dialogue around mental health, foster connections among people, and encourage support from colleagues, families, and friends.

This builds a world where people with mental health challenges can get the help they need to thrive.

In the community

Our Stability Leaders have spoken at over 100 events in major universities, leading companies, and community spaces.

After a Stability Leader spoke at Microsoft about her experience, it deepened our conversation about mental illness, encouraged people to get support, and sparked important dialogue.  We look forward to doing it again!

The response to our event with The Stability Network was overwhelmingly positive. The Stability Leaders shared beautiful and inspiring stories that connected with our employees in a unique way. I’m so thankful for their expertise and collaboration.” – Elaine Helm, Manager, Premera Blue Cross

We invited a Stability Leader to speak to our organization to help us better understand mental illness. In short, she was amazing. Her story of perseverance deeply resonated with our audience. This Stability Leader—a mother, wife, and co-worker—made us see she is no different than us. If we are to properly address our mental health crisis, we must begin with understanding and compassion. She led us there with authenticity and aplomb. Our members left her talk with a greater understanding and a desire to be part of the solution. Kudos to The Stability Network! – Mark Wright, Past President, Rotary Club of Seattle

“We invited a Stability Leader to speak at two of our Employee Resource Group educational events. It was an impactful presentation and dialogue that helped start the conversation around Mental Health at work and at home. We will definitely plan to invite another speaker next year to keep the conversation going.”
– Diane Zahourek, Operations Manager, JLL
