The stigma is real.
There’s someone that needs to hear that mental illness doesn’t define us. There’s a lot of noise out there about who we are and what we’re capable of. But, we get to speak for ourselves. That’s why this series exists.
It’s a small but meaningful addition to Mental Health Awareness Month.
Storytelling can break chains and make us feel less alone.
Our truths can help others see the other side of a thing, of a person. Our stories can help someone feel a little more empowered, and a little more hopeful.
Each series storyteller did the brave thing of sharing their truth.
Here are those stories.
