Founding the Brilliant Life Community and developing a collaborative resource directory with wide-ranging mental health topics at a grassroots level was imperative. It was important to create a hub of information exchange between all parties supporting the struggling young adults at the heart of her mission.

The community is further served with cutting-edge technologies in neuroscience, new behavioral studies, practical living solutions or other supportive developments being readily and easily accessible.

Today, Mary’s advocacy work has expanded. In the community at large, there are insurance issues, limited access to care in some locations or other barriers that need addressing. She envisions new ways of living, learning, and working for people that are struggling to function in traditional ways.
