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!
Will you help empower peers or persons with the lived experience of a mental health condition?
We need your support to help us create long term sustainable programmes that span across resilience education and peer support initiatives, and are focused on empowering peers through recovery, helping them build resilience to thrive beyond.
Your contribution will help peers build resilience, and learn coping strategies for recovery and mechanisms for sharing their experience. You can empower them to support other peers, encourage persons at mental health risk to seek help, and engage with the wider community to reduce stigma.
Contribute today and make the difference!
