VOH aims to create and implement change for mental health, whilst providing hope through the voices of those with lived experience.Auckland
Voices of Hope was founded in 2014 by Genevieve Mora and Jazz Thornton. Both being mental illness survivors they felt the need to use their past experiences alongside their passion for creating content to provoke and bring change. They do this by creating videos that target mental illness issues as well as writing blog posts on different topics. Since the launch of Voices of Hope, their content, stories and impact have reached millions of people around the world. Recently, Voices of Hope was awarded the 'Points of Light' award by Her Majesty the Queen for the impact they're making within mental health.

In Memory of Adrian Burr 14 December 2020
Last Wednesday the world lost a very special man. Adrian Burr was one of the most kind, generous and passionate men we have had the pleasure of knowing. After becoming an executive producer for 'The Girl on the Bridge Film' he decided he wanted to do more because he believed in the work we do at Voices of Hope. From the first meeting we had with him, we knew he was very special. He listened, he asked questions and he cared. He saw the impact Voices of Hope had made and believed that we could be doing more, so he came on board. Without Adrian, we wouldn’t have had our office space and many of the things that have happened this year, the content and impact you have all seen would not have been possible. We are really sad about this but will continue to make him proud. Adrian, we will miss our coffee and sandwich dates, our chats, and being able to share with you the lives that have been saved. Rest in love ❤️
