Last week I was approached by Stigma Fighters: a blog series about real people living with mental illness. Sarah Fader, the founder asked if I would write an article about my own experience. I submitted this piece about Jason’s death, in particular the first 24 hours after getting the news. Stigma Fighters is about to become a non-profit organization aiming to increase awareness and thus reduce the stigma of mental illness. I’m honoured to have been asked to help support their (and ultimately the collective ‘our’) cause. We are only one story but not alone.

In 2014, myself (Erica) and my two kids, Rain and Moxie, formed Team Adventurers. We are on an amazing journey together full of love, music, laughter and grief. We are finding our own way...together. This blog started as a way to document a 3 week road trip we took in 2015 from Ontario to British Columbia. It has since evolved into a series of my thoughts. The evolution continues.
