Your mental health story in your own voice.

We want the voices and experiences of people in the mental health community to be heard and legitimised. The best way to do this is to create a place where you can share your mental health story in your own words. Not as told by health professionals, academics or writers. As told by you.

thank God that the "lives of others" liked a posting of mine. I checked into the sight to find your story which is almost exactly mine! I am so unbelievably grateful to read about your healing and transformation! So true-you are not alone. I will be 70 in a month and have never read about my condition which started at 7 years of age.

Thank you for sharing. The experience of psychosis and auditory hallucinations is difficult to imagine if it isn't something you have experienced, but you wrote about it so well I feel like I understand it better which is great for reducing any stigma or misconceptions. Thank you for sharing so that we may learn.

Thanks so much for sharing your story, Katie. You are an inspiration. I suffer from Bipolar Disorder and if you don't mind, I'm going to try adopting your '4 out of 5' rules. I think they will be very helpful for me. xxxx

These posts are amazing. It's so nice to hear people's stories and makes me feel supported hearing other people's experiences are similar.
