Strategic Storytelling Resources
Sharing your story can help others understand your experiences, demonstrate why mental health matters, and create a connection with others with similar experiences. By sharing a piece of your journey or something you have learned along the way, you can be a source of hope, inspiration and support to other youth/young adults or families. But sharing can feel vulnerable – our experiences are significant and personal. Knowing how to share your story, what you feel comfortable sharing, and defining your purpose for sharing can help you get your message across in a way that has the most impact on your audience without causing you distress. Check out the links below for inspiration and tips for sharing your story strategically.
