I've just launched a new website called 
Breaking the Window - It's about helping to break stigma against mental illness and abuse; one window at a time.  Stigma hurts!  Every Time! 

The mission statement is:   
It is the mission of Breaking the Window to reach out to people in all areas of life to help, empower, inspire, and educate them in an effort to help break the stigma in the world surrounding Domestic Violence and Mental Health issues; and to help those suffering to build healthier, happier lives.  
I am welcoming guest authors to publish posts on this site that fall within the topics of our mission statement.  Check out the Guest Post Guidelines, and submit a post.  I'd love to hear from you!

The story behind the name 'Breaking the Window' is on the About Us page.  The website also has lots of resources listed for both Abuse and Mental Health issues.
