Amanda Shea is a mental health and LGBT advocate; she founded Voices of Mental Health in July 2015 as a way to share her story and the story of others living with different mental health conditions with the goal of destigmatizing mental health conditions. Amanda has worked and volunteered for a number of organizations working to empower those living with marginalized identities, and she takes an intersectional approach to her work.
Her passion for mental health started through her own struggles with anxiety, depressive episodes, and disordered eating. She has also supported loved ones with different mental health conditions, such as bipolar. She believes in power storytelling and online advocacy.
When she is not running Voices of Mental Health, she is working as the Owner and Chief Content Officer for her marketing and content creation business, AMS Creative Studio. She resides in the Greater Boston area with her partner and fur kids, Bernadette & Teddy.
