The Standing Strong Blog was created as an interactive format where strangers can share their stories of living with mental illness. Whether it be your own or you care for someone with mental illness, your story will help break down the wall of stigma and will encourage others to speak up and reach out. Not exactly sure what qualifies as mental illness? See below.
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
We don’t just post personal stories. If you are aware of or are involved in any mental health initiatives in your community and would like to spread the word, we will help by sharing it on the blog. Various mental health related topics are also discussed and past subjects include suicide prevention, post-partum depression, social anxiety, and bereavement to name a few.
There is no word limit and spelling and punctuation is not an issue as that can easily be edited on our end. We also seek to post art inspired by mental illness, whether it be drawings or poetry. Please send all submissions and or topic requests to Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Together, we stand strong and continue to stomp out the stigma of mental illness.
