Welcome the 6th Annual Mental Health Awareness Month Book Fundraiser benefiting the Keith Milano Memorial Fund at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
For the 6th year, an amazing group of authors have generously agreed to donate a portion of their May sales to the Keith Milano Memorial Fund, and for the first time, I am privileged to say that I am one of the donating authors.
I’ve spoken before about my personal struggle with depression and anxiety, and about how it has impacted my life and the lives of those I love. It is my dream that we #BreakTheStigma when it comes to mental health, so people no longer have to suffer in silence, and families no longer have to wake up to loss and heartache.
It might be a crazy dream, a far-fetched one, but it’s mine—and if there it anything I can I do to make it possible, then I will. And I hope you will join me.
Here is how you can help raise money and awareness for mental health:
- You can purchase a book from the amazing books listed below! We hope you will #1click4charity a number of these amazing books! Please note that although are Amazon Kindle buy links, the portion of sales is from any platform: digital, print and audio.

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund
was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness. Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness. Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.
If you want to know more about Keith or why Denise does what she does, here is short video/interview that speaks to that!
