Stay Awhile Project

We are embarking on a goal. A goal for hope, clarity, and vulnerability. We are asking you to submit your personal stories of depression. How did you overcome suicidal ideation? What would you have missed out in life, if you had taken your life? We’ll be collecting these stories for the next month and anonymously posting them here for all to read. On the 15th of June, we’ll open a poll for every reader to vote on their favorites, and the winners will win big!

I know that these are touchy subjects to discuss. I hope that opening this line of communication can serve as a beacon of hope. A light for those of us who are still lost within the throes. In the leadup to putting this together, I have been forced to introspect my own past battles. Working out ways and ideas that could best reach out to help others. “What would have helped me?” has been the burning question these past few weeks. This project is the fruit of that concept.

Let’s create something beautiful together.
