What To Write About

Don’t think that you must be Shakespeare or Picasso to participate, the important thing is to share your thoughts and reflections with others.

What can your story be about?

  • You can create your story about experiences of managing mental health difficulties whilst in higher education.
  • You can create your story about how to tackle different challenges in higher education.
  • You can create a story about how to talk to friends – whether supporting a friend who’s struggling or opening up about your own difficulties.
  • You can create a story around strategies that have helped you overcome your mental health difficulties.
  • You can create a story about the ways in which you have learned new life skills.

These stories can generally include thoughts, feelings and experiences. They can also include where you draw strength from, how you care for yourself and how you found solutions to the problems that you faced.

Before publishing

The stories will be reviewed before they are posted, so remember to respect the privacy of people you refer to. Individuals should not be able to be identified. We will contact you before the story is posted on the site so that you will have the final say over it being published on multiple media channels.

It is also worth considering that you can write your story with a pseudonym or your own name.
