Hi everyone ????????
I am in the process of launching a website that gives people a platform to share their mental health experiences. The site is based on the belief that the more we share our experiences with others, the easier it is for them to tell their own stories and seek help when it is needed.
Considering the growing awareness of mental wellbeing, as well as the current circumstances we find ourselves in, letting others know about our mental health and reducing the stigma attached is more important than ever.
Before I launch it properly, I am looking to build the beginnings of a community on the site via a collection of stories for newcomers.
Which brings me to the point of this post: would anyone like to share a story of their mental health experiences? The story can be about anything you like, as long as it's related to mental health. For example:
- yours or someone you know/cared for's current or past mental health
- mental health in the media, society or working life
- thoughts on mental health treatment, awareness, and education
The stories can be submitted anonymously here: https://www.talkingmentalhealth.com/contribute
Alternatively, if you would like your stories attributed to you (or you just like the sound of the joining the community) you can register as a member here: https://www.talkingmentalhealth.com/register
Thanks for your help ????????
