A native of Leesport, Pennsylvania, Alysa Bainbridge is a journalist, non-profit CEO, mental health advocate, and Miss Pennsylvania 2022. Alysa graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Saint Joseph’s University in 2021. She’s currently working to earn her Master of Science in Leadership from Cabrini University on a full-tuition scholarship, thanks to her participation in the Miss America Organization.

Alysa is a passionate advocate for mental health and Recovery through her social impact initiative, Tyler’s Triumph: The More Than Project. Growing up, both of Alysa’s siblings struggled with mental illness. She started The More Than Project to empower people like her siblings, letting them know they are so much more than their struggle, and that a mental health diagnosis doesn’t define them. After losing her brother, Tyler, to a six-year-long battle with addiction in 2018, Alysa founded a non-profit organization, called Tyler’s Triumph, in his memory.

Tyler’s Triumph

Tyler’s Triumph provides direct support and tools to those in recovery from mental health and substance use disorders to help them thrive in Recovery. It is Alysa’s mission to educate all ages about the importance of early mental health intervention and create stigma-free spaces for those struggling to live in.
