Share Your Story

It’s important for people living with mental health conditions to know that they are not alone. Sharing a story about your personal experiences with mental health challenges can help in your own recovery as well as provide encouragement and support to others with similar experiences. Telling your story can take several forms:

  • Prose/poetry
  • Song lyrics
  • Inspirational quotes
  • Drawings
  • Photos
  • Videos

NAMI offers two safe, moderated spaces for sharing stories and creative expression: You Are Not Alone and OK2Talk. These spaces also allow for anonymous public posting, unlike our NAMI blog.

You have an authentic voice. You can make a difference for yourself and others by sharing your experiences and perspective. What has helped? What hasn’t? What has been most discouraging about your condition? What has given you hope? There are all sorts of things you know that other people want to know—you are not alone.

Let them know that they aren’t either.

Reach out to NAMI Davidson Co. if you would like to  join our In Our Own Voice speaker program. If you are a member of a creative community, reach out to us. We have occassional opportunities for sharing.  625.891.4724 or
