Share Your Experiences on Living with a Mental Illness

Are you living with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, an addiction, or another mental health condition? Maybe you have a family member or loved one with an eating disorder or who self-injures.

By sharing your experiences, you can provide insight and help others learn more about the illness, diagnosis and treatments, and coping strategies. It also lets others, facing similar situations, know that they are not alone in their feelings and experiences.

Stigma of Mental Illness

There's also an ugly side to living with a mental health disorder. Have you faced the stigma of mental illness? What happened? What was that like for you? How did you deal with it?
