Share your story to inspire hope and break down stigma!

Research shows those who have disclosed aspects of their mental illness frequently report a sense of personal empowerment that enhances self-esteem and promotes confidence to seek and achieve individual goals (National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment). We know your experiences are ones of both strength and struggle. Thank you for being part of our community of support and for sharing anything that you think might be helpful to others.

As it is critical that we keep this forum positive and encouraging, please know that all story submissions will be reviewed by a moderator prior to posting. Thank you again.
