To join our photo mural and the Band Together movement in support of mental health awareness, take a photo with your bracelet and use the hashtag #WeBandTogether.
What is the Band Together Community?
We are a community of people committed to breaking down the shame, isolation and stigma often associated with mental health and replacing it with belonging, hope and solidarity. This is a safe place for you to share your own experiences and get connected with others who have experienced similar struggles.
Share Your Story
A place to anonymously share your mental and emotional health journey in order to break through fear, shame and isolation. You can also read the stories of others. Vulnerability is courage!
Wear Your Story
Band Together bracelets give you a tangible reminder that you are never alone in your struggles and that at your core, you are an overcomer. Wear your band with purpose and for solidarity – you are never alone!
A place to dive deeper into conversation and content to help support you in your mental health journey, our blog, podcast and community forums offer a place for you to connect with others who are facing similar struggles.
How does it work?
Band Together is a safe online space for the mental health community. People (including you) can anonymously share their stories online through our Share page and find encouragement through the stories of others. You can also wear your story by choosing a bracelet to wear on a daily basis and be reminded that you are an overcomer.
The stories on our website are shared exactly as they are received without editing or censorship. Reader discretion is advised, as some stories may contain content that some may find triggering or disturbing. To maintain a safe space for those who have shared, commenting capabilities have been turned off. Instead, you can leave a Reaction on the stories as a way to let the author know you are standing with them.
