Daring Greatly is a term for self acceptance. It's not about Winning or Losing. It's about Courage. It's about being brave enough to be seen exactly as we are, with all of our fears and imperfections.
Mental Health is something that we try to communicate. It can be difficult, but it is not impossible. We want to remind all people that everyone has internal battles (even superheroes) and that someone will always be around to help you, if you are willing.
