What is #LivetoTell?

#LivetoTell is a storytelling campaign that shares personal stories of resilience, rebound, and recovery. By telling these stories, #LivetoTell aims to shift the narrative society holds on mental health. By sharing personal episodes of resilience, rebound, and recovery, we can bring greater depth in understanding and validate a variety of lived experiences. #LivetoTell hopes to empower others to share their stories as well.

Through video, music, writing, artwork, poetry, dance, conversations, and many other expressions, you can #LivetoTell your story.
