Everyone has an authentic voice, and we can make a difference by sharing our experiences and perspectives. We are empowered advocates and must have a voice in our recovery and in the policies facilitating our recovery. We bring our lived experience, therefore, we must be central in any dialogues and decisions about mental health issues at all levels. People want to know what has helped and what has given you hope. Let them know they are not alone. Sharing personal stories of mental health recovery can be a profound experience. It can awaken awareness and help people heal by providing comfort to those facing similar challenges and reducing our own sense of isolation. Do you have a mental health recovery story you would like to share? Email us!
