Share Your Story

We want to hear your story.

At NAMI, we want to hear your stories and share them. Complete the form below to tell us how mental illness has affected your life. What has been challenging? What has been helpful to you? What changes would you like to see in mental health care and mental health discourse? The word count for these submissions, which should read like a short personal essay, is 400-700 words. We will select stories to feature throughout the year on NAMI’s personal stories section and/or social media.
