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.


Mental Health Charity, Voices of Hope (VoH) was founded in 2014 by Genevieve Mora and Jazz Thornton. Both having fought mental illness they felt the need to use their past experiences alongside their passion for creating content to provoke and bring change. Voices of Hope is a lived experience storytelling platform.

VoH share stories of people who have faced mental health challenges, focusing on the skills and tools they used on their journeys. Through the voices of those with lived experience, VoH shares real, raw and vulnerable content. Both founders regularly speak at schools, corporates and conferences sharing their own lived experience.

Since the launch of Voices of Hope, their content has reached millions of people around the world and has received both national and international recognition (including the 'Points of Light' Award by Her Majesty the Queen for the impact they're making within mental health) and has caught the attention of people and organisations wanting to support their vision.



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.

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 ❤️
