The origin of TEAM GARBO starts with AJ Garboski and his road with Bipolar Disorder. As a teenager in the early stages of his diagnoses he struggled to understand what was happening and what to do. Luckier than most AJ has a network of family and friends who flocked to his side in his darkest of times to help him navigate through his journey with Mental Health. AJ's 'TEAM' has not stopped supporting and helping him live his best life. Humbled by how fortunate he is to have such a great 'TEAM' by his side he joined up with those same people to start making a difference for others.
The initial goal of this organization goes way beyond being a public charity advocating for mental health awareness. Simply put, AJ knows there are others out there who don't have their own 'TEAM' to support them in times of need. His hope is for those who are battling Mental Health not to suffer as much as he has and offer a spot on our TEAM for anyone who needs it.
When roots are deep there is no reason to fear the wind!
WHAT WE DO
We are a TEAM of individuals who have been impacted by Mental Health directly or indirectly throughout the years. For nearly a decade, we have banded together as a group to support one another on our own Mental Health journeys. Knowing others aren’t as fortunate to have a support system of this nature we set out to share our experiences and give back to the community.
We established TEAM GARBO in 2018 looking to deepen our roots so others wouldn’t struggle as much as we have had in the past. As a public charity advocating for mental health awareness our mission is to normalize the stigma behind mental health and bridge the gap between everyday individuals and Mental Health initiatives.
There is no health without mental health.
