How to
safely share
your story:

1
Make sure you're ready to talk about your mental health story. If you don't want to talk about your mental health experience or journey, you don't have to. The choice is completely up to you.
2
You may use this platform to share publicly, or to keep your stories private for yourself. If you decide to share your experience publicly, your story will be available on the website for anyone logged in to see.
3
Define your key message. Think about what you would like the audience to know about your story. We want to hear your authentic voice, but we also want to offer an inspiring message of hope to those hearing your personal experience.
4
Educate your network. People may see your story and reach out for help. Remember, there are many resources to direct them to. If you feel they are in crisis, recommend Crisis Text Line, a free 24/7 confidential crisis intervention service via SMS. Text COALITION to 741741 to speak to a trained crisis counselor.
