Student Stories of Lived Experience of Mental Illness
You are invited to tell your story
Mental illness is a topic that is not talked about often enough, and yet there can be tremendous comfort in knowing that others share your challenges.
In particular, we'd like to hear your stories about resiliency, support, or recovery. How might your messages bring hope and encouragement to other students who may be going through similar challenges?
We do understand that not everyone who experiences mental health challenges is ready to share their story.
Only with your consent, content from your story may be made public, promoted on social media, and used for future promotion. Your story can be completely anonymous, or you can choose a display name to use.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Student Stories of Lived Experience of Mental Illness Form is now closed.
Everyone feels stressed now and then – it’s a normal part of university life. Some days are better than others, and there’s no wrong time to reach out.
There are resources for every situation and every level of stress at: How are you feeling today?
