Who We Are

Billions of people are facing serious health conditions — including many of us at The Mighty. It’s so easy to feel like we are facing these challenges alone. The truth is, we are all facing disability, disease and mental illness together.

But when we look online for help, all we often find is medical information. We want a community, too. That’s what The Mighty is building.

We publish real stories by real people facing real challenges. We are building a brand and a community around them. Having a disability or disease doesn’t have to be isolating. That’s why The Mighty exists.

We’re creating a safe platform for our community to tell their stories, connect with others and raise support for the causes they believe in. We are stronger when we face adversity together, and we know it. We’ve also partnered with over 200 nonprofit allies to deliver their excellent resources to our community.
