Stories are one of the most powerful ways we change the mental health conversation and we want to hear yours. Complete the form below to tell us how mental illness has affected your life. What has been challenging? What's been helpful to you? What changes would you like to see in mental health care? Your short personal essay should be about 400-700 words. We will select stories to feature throughout the year and may contact you about other opportunities to share your story with the community.
