MHFA is creating a platform for individuals with lived experience to share their insight with the MHFA community and the world — and help change the narrative surrounding mental wellbeing.
Storytelling is powerful and can provide mental health benefits like increased positive emotions, empathy, memory retention and more. Exploring personal stories, reflecting on them and sharing them with others can also help us process, heal and grow. Your stories can also inspire hope for others living with a mental health or substance use challenge.
You have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, Oct. 10 to submit your story. When you do, you’ll be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a free MHFA merchandise bundle or a complimentary registration to NatCon23 in Los Angeles, California, May 1-3, 2023.
