Message Gallery – content

“It brings people to their knees to know that the world is filled with good people and not just people who will take advantage of you. There is power in words.”

-Gretchen Casey, creator of Unshame

The main purpose of Unshame is to create a space for messages of support, love, and healing for anyone to access around the world. This message gallery is that place, built from words, woven together with images and painted with experiences of survival, support and resilience.

These messages are intended to reach everyone at different stages of healing or support, for those those who have been through years of counseling and for those who have been too frightened or ashamed to seek help, for those who have just experienced trauma and for those who have lived with their experiences for decades, for those who have many resources and for those have none. And for everyone in between.

Empower someone today by sharing a message of encouragement, compassion or support and actively begin to erase the shame.
