The Birth of the Hope Initiative

Glenn Kopelson, the founder of The Hope Initiative, navigated mental health issues with his two children and found that there is a path towards success.  He started the project provide inspiration to people who suffer from mental health issues and show them that there is a path towards getting healthy.  

At first, Glenn began a storytelling program at his local hospital to tell his journey as a parent with kids that have challenges.  His story resonated with the audience and demonstrated that there is a need to tell personal journeys in order to help people cope with mental illness.

The Hope Initiative collects stories from people that are getting healthy in the behavioral health community. We hope that one of the stories resonates with you.
