I improve mental health & suicide prevention outcomes through

Hello, I’m Misha.

I’m a published and award-winning advocate, social entrepreneur, and speaker in mental health and suicide prevention. My own experiences with mental health challenges became the foundation of my career, motivating, informing, and grounding my pursuits. Since those challenges, I’ve dedicated myself to pursuing systemic improvements to mental healthcare.

The common thread of my career has been to bring principles of consumer autonomy and user-oriented design to mental healthcare, with the goal of improving treatment and prevention outcomes; however, my training, roles, and focuses have spanned a diverse cross-section of many industries.

I trust my work will convey a theme:

Tireless action, driven by passion, handled with great attentiveness, begetting notable results, and predicated on an endless desire for self-taught knowledge.
