"What inspired me to write MAYA The Sacrifice is my experience as a full-time caregiver to my daughter who's going through tough times. Her courage, strength, and determination keep me going. Mental illness is not something you ignore; it has to be addressed. Over the past 20 years, suicide rates have been on the rise. It is a major national public health issue in the United States and throughout the world. It is time to make Mental Health Awareness a priority and end the stigma. Our mission is to promote awareness and tolerance on Mental Health through an artistic approach. My team and I will make this amazing film a success. Let's end the stigma because of everyone's lives matter. Helping others is not a chore; it is the greatest gift there is."
