Libero Network Society is a nonprofit organization registered with the government of British Columbia (incorporation number: S—0062089).
Beginning in 2010 when our Founder Lauren Bersaglio shared her story on Facebook and it went viral, Libero grew over the years forming into a non-profit online community where people can share their stories, find support, and access resources for mental health and recovery.
Our message is one of freedom: freedom from shame, freedom from secrecy, freedom from being silenced.

Support, Acceptance, Mental Health.
Our pillars are the legs on which we stand and they are directly linked to our core: hope, love, and freedom.
We believe recovery support is about hope:
We believe every journey begins with hope. Recognizing hope exists is the first step towards freedom. Through our writing, and sharing the stories of others, our goal is to show hope is there and it is for everyone. Hope is what keeps us moving forward – trusting there are better things to come.
By fostering acceptance, we promote love:
Love is essential: both love of self and love of others. So often what holds us back is a lack of self-acceptance, a lack of belief we deserve better. In order to break free, we must learn to love ourselves and show love to others. It is through love that we realize we are worthy of so much more.
Our goal is to advocate mental health so others can live and walk in freedom:
Everything we do points towards freedom. We have hope for freedom, and love is what gets us there. We do not believe freedom is found only through “full recovery.” Freedom is found when we break through the walls of secrecy and shame that kept us trapped so we can own our stories and begin to thrive.
