Submit

Hi there! Are you here to submit your story? The Personal Stories section is meant to help and inspire others who are struggling. Before you submit something, let’s make sure you're in the right place. We just have a few questions.

Also, please know that if you submit something that states you are in crisis, we:

  • may not receive your submission right away.
  • cannot post your submission.
  • cannot respond to you.
  • may need to contact police to ensure your safety.

Is your submission about you or a friend that is currently in crisis?
Are you at risk of hurting yourself or someone else, or at risk of committing suicide?

Please get help immediately!

Call 911 or get yourself to the nearest hospital now. You can also call a crisis line in your area.

Sharing you story is important, however, if you are in crisis it may not be the right time. Your safety comes first. Get the help you need and deserve, and come back to submit your story at a better time.

If you are unsure about what's wrong and need mental health information, go to the Help section.

To talk to someone immediately, call Kids Help Phone at 1-800-668-6868 or chat online with a Mental Health Helpline Information and Referral Specialist.

Mental health isn't always pretty. There's not always a storybook ending and struggles just don't end the day you decide to get help. It's a process that we're all working through and we commend you for that. That said, the personal stories on this site are meant to help others who are struggling. It's here to promote healthy coping and resilience - it's so you know you're not alone.

Please come back another time. We'll be here when you're ready to share your story with others at a better time! In the meantime, explore the site and check out some of the personal stories shared by other young people.
