This Is My Brave and Depressed Cake Shop teamed up with the writers from Amy Ferris’ critically important new anthology, Shades of Blue (Seal Press), to produce an event which raised the volume of conversation surrounding mental health issues, one powerful story at a time.
Dr. Estes, along with the other presenters at the show are attempting to help end the stigma surrounding mental health issues by sharing personal stories of individuals living successful, full lives despite mental illness.
“Through the telling of my story and experiences, I hope to aid those in addiction and mental illness recovery by providing some hope, and maybe a few laughs too,” stated Estes after the show at the Comedy Store.
“It’s not a laughing matter at all, but if I can get someone to understand life can get better while making someone smile and reducing the stigma, I’m all for it,” she noted.
This Is My Brave was created to help society realize that for every celebrity who opens up about suffering from a mental health issue, there are millions of ordinary, everyday people struggling with these conditions, most suffering in silence.
 During the event, Dr. Cali Estes, The Addictions Coach, and The Addictions Academy also announced a new partnership with Robert Tisdale who will serve as their Chief Strategy Officer in a consulting capacity. Robert will be aligning those seeking addiction Coaching with the Addictions Coach platform of services throughout the entertainment and technology industries.
Mr. Tisdale is a seasoned entrepreneurial entertainment executive and the CEO of Managing Artistic Concepts, a talent and literary management / TV & Film production & marketing company based in Los Angeles, CA.
Robert voiced that “I have witnessed the proliferation of substance abuse and addiction and the unfortunate inevitable destruction that ensues.”
“I am excited to consult with a team that helps others find their way back to happiness,” he also mentioned.
