Tell Your Story

Tell Your Story!

Everyone has a voice! Everyone has a story! NAMI Philadelphia encourages you to share your story and your experience with us! We value everyone's unique experiences and are respectful of everyone's individual journey. 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


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.
