We want to know 2 things:
What does freedom mean to you and what are you free from?
Our “Free from” photo project is about sharing our mental health stories and celebrating freedom. We believe when we share our stories, we can fight stigma, spread hope, and champion mental health!

“To me, freedom is about owning my story and letting go of the shame and secrecy that kept me trapped for years. It’s about shedding the lies and clinging only to the truth about who I am and what I am capable of.”
-Lauren Bersaglio, Founder of Libero
About our “Free From” Project
We talk a lot about freedom here at Libero; it’s even in our name (did you know ‘Libero’ means ‘Free’?).
Freedom is at the core of our mission and is the foundation of the story behind Libero. We know, however, that “freedom” means something different to everyone. Just as each of us has something different we are “Free From,” we each have a different definition of what that means to us.
This project allows you to share your mental health story and celebrate the freedom you have found in a way that feels true to you.
Share your mental health story on our site!
We love sharing mental health stories from our community! If you would like to share your story with the Libero community and have it published on our site, please fill out our “Free From” interview by clicking the button below:

Here’s how some of our community members define “Freedom”:
Freedom means breaking free of my comfort zone and living in the moment, with no fears or anxieties–a life full of love for myself and for others.
To me, freedom is about owning my story and letting go of the shame and secrecy that kept me trapped for years. It’s about shedding the lies and clinging only to the truth about who I am and what I am capable of.
Freedom is the chance to live. Actually just live. Not have something controlling you or threatening to destroy your life all the time. Freedom is simply just living and living without fear.
Freedom means letting your true self be your guide.
Freedom has come to mean the ability to believe in a future of unlimited possibilities. I am free to think of any future I desire, to work towards any goals I want to achieve, and to make whatever dreams I want happen. It’s a beautiful thing, freedom.
