Share Your Story


Telling personal stories of recovery can be one of the most effective ways to diminish stigma and help individuals and families who are still facing challenges related to mental illness. It can also be personally empowering and therapeutic for the storyteller. Share your story and a photo with NAMI California, and we may feature it in an upcoming Your Stories blog and newsletter!

Check out these guidance questions to help you write your story.
