Please Support our Work During COVID-19
We provide peer support for mental health through our articles and online community. Since the pandemic, we experienced a 50% increase in views between March and April and our site views for April 2020 were 115% higher than April of last year! However, our fundraising activities have been limited to online donations exclusively because of social distancing.
Our nonprofit work is needed now more than ever. Please support us so we can offering support to those who need it through COVID-19 and beyond!

Did you know Libero is run by volunteers?
Yes, this even includes those who manage our submissions, design our graphics, and keep our social media running.
We also don't accept paid sponsorships, place ads on our site, or put a paywall in front of any of our content.
This means we rely exclusively on donations to keep our site running.
We always say "We are a nonprofit, but our hosting company isn't!" What this means is, there are ongoing costs to making our content available to those who need it.
This is why we now have a donation form for monthly patrons. For as little as $5/month you can help keep Libero alive!
What are the perks? In short: everything and nothing.
In terms of exclusive perks, there aren't any. We are fully committed to making ALL of our content available to anyone who needs it, which is why we chose not to have a tiered patron system.
However, your ongoing support makes ALL of the content we share possible, which means the "perk" to being a patron is that you are making it possible for us to continue creating new content.
Please consider becoming a monthly patron and supporting our ongoing efforts to provide peer support for mental health through our content!

Who are we?
Libero Network Society is a BC registered incorporated not-for-profit organization (#S—0062089) founded in 2010 by Lauren Bersaglio. We are an online peer support network offering community, resources, and encouragement to those living with mental health conditions.
Our Mission is to champion mental health and foster community so those living with mental health conditions can know they aren’t alone and that freedom is possible. Our Vision is for a world free from stigma, where no one feels ashamed of or alone in their struggles.
We accomplish our mission by providing a platform for sharing stories through our “Free From” Project, advocating mental well-being through our online magazine, offering professional resources and support through our Ask An Expert Column, and spreading our message of hope and freedom through our social community.
The funds we raise allow us to:
- Keep our online magazine up and running
- Expand our community by attending fairs
- Distribute print materials that spread the word about our resources and online community
- Organizational costs such as annual registration fees, educational resources, and necessary tools
- Launch new projects (such as a Podcast)
- Create additional resources (such as a print magazine)
- Host our own events and attend more in-person events
