Voices of Hope

Voices of Hope

VOH aims to create and implement change for mental health, whilst providing hope through the voices of those with lived experience.


At Voices of Hope we believe in the power of sharing your lived experience to create positive change. Our storytelling platform exists to bring better understanding of mental health challenges, promote help-seeking behaviours and useful resources, and ultimately spread hope.

Voices of Hope was founded in 2017 by Genevieve Mora and Jazz Thornton, individuals who have personally battled mental illness. Using their past experiences and their passion for content creation, they built a platform to share lived experience and hope. Over the years the VoH has grown into a community of people around Aotearoa and the world, who contribute to the ever evolving mental health conversation.



Genevieve Mora spent most of her teenage years battling Mental Illness. As part of her recovery she has made it her mission to offer hope to those fighting mental illness. Genevieve co-founded Voices of Hope and through this uses her lived experience to show people that recovery is possible and that there is no shame in having a mental illness. Genevieve is the co-creator of Love your Kite, a global eating disorder resource app and speaks about her journey regularly on her YouTube channel and TikTok page. Gen was also named as a Westfield Local Hero for her work and a finalist for the Impact Awards.


Having overcome childhood adversity and multiple suicide attempts, Jazz Thornton has now dedicated her life to speaking hope and creating change in the area of mental health. Jazz co-founded Voices of Hope and her unique experience and practical message has gained worldwide recognition, being shared through media, international speaking engagements and through documentary feature film, The Girl on The Bridge. Jazz is also the award winning director of Jessica’s Tree, Young New Zealander of the Year 2021 and author of Stop Surviving Start Fighting, My Journey Starts Here and new release, Letters to You.

Your donations go towards school talks, resource/book donations, creative campaigns, and everything else we come up with that shares stories of hope, and fosters empathy and understanding around mental health.
