Share Your Story

“We all have a battle to fight. Don’t fight alone. Every time you share your story, a part of you finds healing and yet another part sweetly pushes you into the realm of personal greatness.”

– Dana Ross

SHARE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH STORY ANONYMOUSLY

This is a place to anonymously share your mental health story with the supportive Band Together community. We know it takes vulnerability and courage to put your experiences into words. We want you to know that this is a safe place and we will respect your journey by publicly sharing your story exactly as we receive it. You can share as much or as little as you want to, and you are welcome to share as many times as you like. To expand how we are supporting the mental health community, excerpts from the anonymous stories may be shared across our social media platforms.

Readers can choose to leave a reaction inside the story itself for the person who shared their mental health story to come back and see! This is one more way our community can connect to one another and show support, love and solidarity for the experiences that so many of us share.

WHAT IS YOUR STORY?

DISCLAIMER

This is not a confessional but a safe place for you to anonymously share your struggle with mental and emotional health in order to diminish the effects of stigma and shame. Any submissions that disclose involvement in criminal activity or explicitly promote violence, self-harm, or suicide will not be posted for the protection of our community. Additionally, any submissions which confess criminal activity will be forwarded to law enforcement for further investigation.

This area is not meant to be a place to promote links, social media accounts, podcasts or advertise other no doubt valuable causes. If you have helpful resources our community should know about please connect through social media or use our ‘contact us’ page.

If you or someone you know is currently experiencing a crisis and need immediate help, please contact the appropriate EMERGENCY RESOURCES as soon as possible.
