Following her magnanimous offer and the interest it’s sparked across the globe, Whitney wrote, “I am so glad that Mental Illness is being brought in to the light and that people are reaching out for help.

The enquiries I have received have been emotionally overwhelming though being able to personally get in touch with you all has brought so much warmth to my heart. This is going to be an incredible, life changing year.”
