I am a huge supporter of storytelling and the power it has on mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Owning our narratives, sharing our unique stories, and being vulnerable helps to cultivate empathy, compassion, and connections. Reflecting on our journeys allows us to celebrate our victories and demonstrates to others that healing is possible.
At a time when many are feeling isolated, let us use storytelling to close the gap between people, establish inclusive mental health initiatives, and create stronger and healthier relationships with ourselves and with others. All stories and voices matter!
