Many of us with lived experience of mental health issues have come to recognise the benefit of telling our story.

Not only does it provide a beacon of hope for others experiencing similar distress, and continue the job of de-stigmatising mental health issues, but the telling of it can be cathartic, helping us process our own experience and move to a better place.

If you would like to share your story, please complete the form below and we will look to add it into our weekly newsletter Mad Monday Memo and/or social media posts so that your experience can be an inspiration for others.

Add a photo and your first name only if you’re happy to, otherwise your privacy is assured and your personal details will not be published or shared.

Thank you

The BEING team
