Be Free Project

The Be Free Project was founded by Katie Jolicoeur as a way to bring yoga and meditation out in to the community to aid in healing people with mental illness. The other part of the project is creating an online presence and media presence to help relieve the stigma associated with mental illness. 

This initiative was born from Katie's experience with Depression, having gone through depression as a teenager, and revisiting it in the spring and summer of 2015. Yoga and Meditation were a huge factor in the healing and coping process for Katie. Like many she felt the shame that often accompanies dealing with mental illness, taking this she decided to help others going through similar experiences. 

We aim to support existing groups in the Parkland County area that are already doing great things for people with mental illness and give them this extra tool of yoga and meditation to help them heal.
