From Darkness to Light

PhotoStory celebrates the journey of mental health recovery through visual imagery. It stands testament to the impact of empowerment and the admirable qualities of resilience, built among our peers, or persons with the lived experience of a mental health condition, as they faced and overcame their mental challenges, adopted coping skills and strategies, and shifted along the mental health continuum towards good mental health.

Raising literacy that mental health does not exist in a vacuum and needs the active participation of an inclusive society, combating stigma, guiding those in need to their own recovery solutions and inspiring those at risk to seek help are further cornerstones of PhotoStory.

We invite you to come on the journey with our peers, to walk into their PhotoStory, through the darkness and out to the light!

You can make a difference to the recovery journeys of more than 300,000 peers, or persons with a mental health condition. Give them the opportunity to rebuild their identities and find the strength to share their lived experience, supporting personal betterment and helping those at risk.

Your contributions will allow for resilience programmes and peer support initiatives. You will also sustain efforts that extend the peer voice, not only for a peer’s personal betterment but for those of persons-at-risk.

  • Thank you for helping us make a difference so that our peers can make that difference.
