Jazz Thornton survived trauma and abuse at a very young age, then suffered anxiety, depression and chronic suicidal thinking. She found her way through, to become a successful author (Stop Surviving Start Fighting), public speaker, award-winning web series director (Jessica's Tree) and international mental-health advocate. A movie about Jazz and the making of Jessica's Tree has just been released - The Girl on the Bridge.
Genevieve Mora spent the majority of her teenage years battling OCD, anorexia and anxiety, but with help and support she overcame her issues and is now the proud co-founder, along with Jazz Thornton, of the organisation Voices of Hope, which aims to remove the stigma around mental illness, and to show that hope is real and recovery is possible.
