The sole purpose of the play is to inspire people of color to seek help whenever they encounter mental health challenges. XOXO, Sane Jane was written to Enlighten, Educate and Empower people of color to break the mental health stigma, just as Paige did!
While growing up, Paige had her share of life’s challenges. Being a two-time suicide survivor diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 22, Paige spent the first 24 years of her life suffering in silence – without a clear purpose.
Although Bipolar disorder can occur at any age, it is typically diagnosed in the teenage years or early twenties. However, all of these hurdles only made Paiges’ journey more inspiring.
Today, at age 31, Paige Gaines is a producer, a writer, a leading voice in mental health awareness, and a sought-after speaker nationwide. Additionally, Paige founded her own organization, 911 Sane Jane, which is an organization dedicated to providing a voice for the voiceless through strategic education and storytelling. Paige’s efforts and contributions were recognized and rewarded in 2021 when NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) gave her the Young Leader Award for her contributions as a mental health advocate and pioneer.
The play’s Executive Producer, Valeria Knox, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Studies and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. She is a go-getter and a person who is committed to impacting the world positively.
The play’s Director, Jamia Tucker, who also acts in the play is a triple threat (Actor, Singer, Dancer) and received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCA&T).
