STAGES is a project about highlighting the importance of mental health. We all struggle with coping in our day to day lives, and because of this we wanted to create a safe space where it is okay to be vulnerable through art. This is a series of photographs and interviews where team members Sarah Elizabeth, Daniela Sofia and Anthony Alvarez share their own issues battling anxiety and depression. We want to encourage our community to start these conversations and remind you that it is okay to not be okay. Our goal with this project is to show you that it's okay to be open with yourself and those around you. There is always someone willing to lend a helping hand, even if it doesn't feel like so. We're here for you and we love you, don't you forget it.
