Share Your Story

It’s important for people living with mental health conditions to know that they are not alone. Sharing a story about your personal experiences with mental health challenges can help in your own recovery as well as provide encouragement and support to others with similar experiences.

You have an authentic voice. You can make a difference for yourself and others by sharing your experiences and perspective. What has helped? What hasn’t? What has been most discouraging about your condition? What has given you hope? There are all sorts of things you know that other people want to know—you are not alone. Let them know that they aren’t either.

MHA offers spaces to allow for anonymous public posting, like our share your story tab. You can share your story, experience in our Facebook and Twitter pages. Connect with us and share your photos, videos, poems, songs or whatever you may think can help in the recovery of yourself and of others.

Your story can also encourage others to seek for help. It is however important to know that people with mental illness are stigmatized, so make a conscious choice.
