[📣📣 SHARE YOUR STORY FOR CHANGE 🚩🚩]
Have you ever at a point in your life gone through a personal struggle with mental health? What was that experience like for you, and what did the journey to recovery look like? 🧘🏻♀️
In conjunction with World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October, SOLS Health is launching a call for submissions for a story-sharing campaign, to raise public awareness and promote better understanding of mental health. We will be selecting several stories to be turned into a collection of short illustrated vignettes that will be featured on our social media platforms throughout October 🖼️🎨
The following are some themes we are seeking to feature in our curation of stories:
1. Describe time in your life when stressors had led to a significant and prolonged impact on your quality of life. What happened, and how did this experience affect you? (Please note that this need not be confined to an official diagnosis of mental illness).
2. Did you seek help or support to address the problem? Why or why not? If you did seek help, whom did you reach out to? (Please note that ‘help’ could include professional therapy as well as informal forms of support.)
3. What were some of the changes you made to better care for yourself? What are some strengths that you have developed through the experience?
If the above has led you to think about sharing an experience, we warmly encourage you to click the link to the Google Form: https://forms.gle/iu5GhPt3SRSNdjb9A for more information on the campaign, as well as detailed guidance on structuring your story and how to submit.

When going through emotional struggles, it is common for us to feel lonely and isolated if we do not know how to ask for help. But this need not be the case. The power of story sharing lies in helping someone out there with similar difficulties know that they are not alone and that, with courage and support, it is possible to get better, and well again 🤝
