Share Your Story


One single story can offer hope, comfort and inspiration. We have videos with true stories here, and invite you to share your own as well. Have you experienced in the impact of stigma around mental illness? Tell us how you started the conversation, what was easy, what was hard, and how it helped. 

We've shared true stories here, and would also love to hear yours.

Please ONLY post your story here. If you have a mental health emergency, please dial 9-1-1.
