Rocking Mental Health
A Not-For-Profit Organization
Mental Health Awareness. By Us. For Us.
Everything started with a guitar, a computer, and a basement. A dream formed after and became what you see now.
Rocking Mental Health is a comfortable place for all of us to share our experiences.
Expressed through the avenue of your choosing, whether it be Videos, Podcasts, Blogs, Music, Art, Books, and more, we are always looking to add new ideas. Let's spread mental health awareness together.
Interested in sharing your content? Send me a message!
We would love to share your creativity!
The Soundboard is where you can share your stories and experiences. Get whatever is on your mind off your mind. A place for others to see they are not alone. You can gain hope and encouragement from reading about another's experiences as all of our stories are unique, but can also be similar. Fill out the above form to get rolling!
Stigma vs. Ben Jammin'
We believe the world needs a mental health boost. We need everything we can get our hands on to help bust through the stigma surrounding mental health. We gain the confidence that it is OK to need and seek out help, and in turn we gain the ability to live the best lives we can possibly see ourselves living.
What Is This All About?
Everyone of one of us is working to better our mental health. No one is exempt. If you are a human on this earth, you are always working on bettering your mental health. This site is meant to be a place for everyone. We all can give something. We all can take something. Inside you will find blogs, podcasts, and more created by people like you and I. We have all been through something related to our mental health. We all have a story to share. We all can take something from each others experiences, good or bad. My goal is to provide a place where there is always something here which can benefit everyone who visits and is created by someone similar to all of us.
Please, take a look at all the selections available and I hope you find something which can be meaningful to your life and meaningful to your mental health growth.

Rat Tail explores director Chad Sogas’ battle with depression in this short autobiographical documentary. What begins as a self-deprecating story about the rat tail he had for nearly ten years (that his parents still keep in the storage room of their basement) transcends into a journey of unexpected self-discovery and healing.

Given To Fly
I've always wanted to try to describe Pearl Jam's song Given To Fly with a painting. Well here it is "Given To Fly". Created using a digital art pad (a tool I am still learning how to use).
We are all Given To Fly. We may take different routes to get there, but know you are meant to fly! Sometimes the route includes some dark places. Be patient. Persevere. You can and will get there and I believe this to be true for everyone.
"Who Am I?" by Jason Kehl
Who Am I? This is a question I have been grappling with since the beginning. Since the moment I asked for help. Since the moment I decided alcohol would no longer control me. I thought I was something when I drank. I thought I knew who that something was, but it got lost in the shuffle of drinking as much as I could each and every time I drank. When you take away a huge part of your life, whether it is negative or positive, there is a rediscovery that takes place. You are basically a new person and it takes time to discover who we really are. The question of "Who Am I?" has come up many many times as I work to find this new me. I feel like I am getting closer everyday, and everyday I figure more and more out, and I do like what I see before me.
