Who We Are

Board & Staff

  • Executive Director

    Leah is a British-Indonesian immigrant who moved from England to the United States in 2016. As a psychiatric survivor, domestic violence survivor, former foster youth, and a person who has previously experienced homelessness, Leah is working towards a world free of oppression and injustice. She believes that promoting psychological and social approaches to psychosis is equity in action towards this vision.

    Trained as an Occupational Therapist, Leah primarily worked in clinical mental health settings until she came to the United States, where she found a home working in nonprofit leadership. Leah has worked in an array of settings with people diagnosed with psychosis, including working in early intervention in psychosis, assertive outreach, a mental health recovery café, a high-secure forensic hospital, and homeless emergency shelters.

  • Operations Director

    Kristine worked in higher education operations for over 20 years, primarily in the Philadelphia area. Due to personal experience with mental illness, she decided to follow her desire to work with and advocate for those who are misunderstood, dismissed or misjudged. She started volunteering for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and is now a Board Member and Volunteer Coordinator for the Greater Philadelphia Chapter. Through this work, she decided to combine her passion for mental health and skill set in operations in her encore career.
