Elyse Fox

Filmmaker and founder of Sad Girls Club

Elyse Fox is a director, activist, and tastemaker living in New York City. You may have read her name in bylines by Vogue Magazine, Forbes and Broadly to name a few. Through her efforts to destigmatize mental health, Elyse has collaborated with Olay Beauty, Harvard University, Instagram, the U.S. Intelligence Community, and Nike. Her mission is to connect communities and spread awareness through vulnerability and storytelling.

In December 2016, Elyse released a documentary film about her ride through depression named Conversations with Friends. After its debut, Elyse received hundreds of inquiries and requests from young women around the world seeking guidance and support with their mental health journey. In January, 2017, Elyse created Sad Girls Club; a stigma-free online and IRL community created for millennials and Gen Z to discuss mental health openly.

Today, Sad Girls Club has fans in 5 continents and over 40 countries. Elyse continues to spread awareness through curriculum consulting, journalism, speaking engagements, and more.

It’s ok to not be ok, all the time.
