We ask that people everywhere join with us for any part of this event, and together, we will keep cycling toward a brighter future, one that affirms life, encourages openness, and cherishes the gumption to seek out support.
Many of us have experienced first-hand the consequences, watching a friend or family member as they made the dark descent, confused as to what we can do.
By not raising awareness of the realities of mental illness, we are creating untenable situations for those who then need to seek help. We understand this reality intuitively, and there are many people who would like to do something but are unsure what.
The first step is simple, if not easy – AWARENESS. In the midst of such suffering, silence is read as indifference. OPAAT Movement is all about communicating to others that we hear them, that they are not alone and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help.
OPAAT Movement’s main campaign for raising awareness into communities is our Annual Virtual Event.

Daniel Hurd, his presentations and his websites do not offer personal medical, or mental health services or advice. He is not a licensed clinician, nor does he give medical or psychiatric services. Daniel’s goal is to spread a message of how he tried, through dedication and hard work, while following a treatment plan which his doctor’s, and clinicians set for him: to change his life and how he learned to live mentally well. His presentations and sites express the truth about his personal experience with having a very severe mental disease. He shares his story of how he personally rose above the statistics after his struggles and is now living mentally well, as he believes you can too.
