Do you have a mental health story or experience that you wish to share? Writing and sharing a personal story can be a profound experience for the storyteller as well as for those reading. Stories about our personal experiences can awaken our awareness, stretch our hearts, and help us to heal. "Share Your Story" aims to do all of these things and to connect with your emotions and the common threads and journeys of the human experience. Indeed, by summoning the strength to reveal ourselves and our struggles, we provide comfort to others facing similar challenges while simultaneously reducing our own sense of isolation.
Whether your nonfictional story is trying or triumphant, insightful or inspiring, we would love to read it and consider it for publication. Sharing your story is as simple as filling out the information fields at the bottom of this page. Please note the following terms and specifications:
- To be considered for publication, your story must be at least 500 words long, never before published online (bio included), grammatically polished, and free of any identifying information aside from your own.
- You agree that your story may not be published elsewhere online in the future. We perform regular checks for duplicate content on the web. In the event your story is found to have been republished elsewhere, we may remove it from GoodTherapy.org without notice. You may link to your story on GoodTherapy.org from your own site or social media page, however.
- We reserve the right to edit your story as we deem necessary, without notice.
- We reserve the right to decline to publish any story, for any reason, without notice.
Thank you for sharing!
