Courage is what guides those with mental health challenges, and enables the recovery journey. For our organization, accountability and transparency are very important.
Compassion and hope resonate for me. Someone close to me is healthy and strong after a long struggle. She is truly an inspiration.
Collaboration resonates with me the most. There are so many different people coming together from all paths of life, who all make this wonderful Foundation happen and function so well.
As a Looking Glass founder, hope and compassion are of utmost importance to me. My family and I understand the personal, emotional and financial impacts of this devastating mental illness and it is through our personal experience that we can say ‘Recovery is Possible’.

The values that resonate with me are: Courage because it's what we need to be the "hands and feet of change” for ourselves and each other. Collaboration because that’s how we get things done! Compassion for each other, for the process, for our own blind spots and learning. Lastly, integrity in all things.
Hope is a lifeline. Hope is love and possibility, and inspires us for the future.
Compassion and collaboration resonate for me. Compassion is essential in providing support, and is something we can always draw upon even when in the depths of despair. Collaboration is critical — the more we collaborate, the closer we get to achieving our vision.
Hope is a particularly powerful element — it was one of the key foundations upon which this organization was established and has been integral to its evolution. Hope is a mindset for positive action and success. It is a conveyance of trust. Hope envisions a better future.
Courage is the value that resonates the most with me. It takes extraordinary courage to admit, take action, and be resolved to engage in recovery from an eating disorder.
