#SameHere Author Alliance
As an author, you have the ability to create stories of hope and inspiration. No matter the genre you write, the ripple effects of your own life challenges almost always show up. Whether it’s through your characters or story line, it’s important for you to tell your truth…In fact, writing may even be your source of self-therapy.
#SameHere Authors recognize that life challenges can impact our mental health. Despite our different outcomes, the traumas we face impact our nervous system structures in a similar manner, making us able to relate to each other’s experiences. When we look at it that way, it’s not the 1-in-5 statistic that we often hear about, but a 5-in-5 reality. We all face challenges and live on a mental health continuum that shifts and changes.
We believe that through literature, we can help normalize conversations about mental health and connect society through the commonalities of these challenges we all face.
