Support Erasing the Distance to help change lives, one story at a time.


Since 2005, Erasing the Distance has been creating space for real people discuss their experiences around mental health—and then sharing these true stories with a wider audience—with the goal of helping people know they are not alone in their mental health journey. 

“I keep thinking about what transpired in your amazing performance yesterday. The question from the grandmother in the audience, and the loving way that she was responded to…it just blew me away. In this day of divisions and hostility, it was so amazing to witness how we can heal each other by listening and embracing a person who is suffering. There were so many layers of extraordinary! You created a setting that changed lives. Hats off to you.”

I feel like it was a God-send that I was at your show last night. I had LITERALLY had a conversation with a co-worker yesterday about the depression that her husband has battled for years. I tried to be empathetic, but I think I really could only sympathize. Erasing the Distance helped me to understand a glimmer of what she must be experiencing.
