#MyStoryMatters is a campaign aimed at sharing people’s positive experiences with recovery and inspiring others to tell their own.
Why do we share our stories? Storytelling can be an important part of recovery and allows individuals to tackle additional steps in overcoming their illness and get to a point where they can then help others.
Also, stories of recovery can help others see that change is possible; that people can get well and more importantly, stay well. Your story can instill hope. Your story can save a life.
Remember, only you can decide if you want to share your recovery story and what parts of it you want to share. Your level of disclosure, and whom you disclose to, is completely up to you.
Please click on the link below to see the guidelines for forming your own story. Also, any questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no “right” way to tell your story. For those that may find it useful, we have created the following link: my-story-matters-guidelines-pdf
