It’s likely that you or someone you care about is struggling with depression and or other types of mental illness. The shame of mental illness has silenced many desperate souls. Silence kills. Isolation leaves people feeling hopeless. We encourage open dialog. The more we talk about depression and suicide, the more lives can be saved. You’re not alone! The first tool of resilience is being willing to be vulnerable when you need help ~ reaching out for help.
Are people born with natural resilience? Or do we learn? Both! We thought it would be nice if you could read real, unedited stories from those who have developed resilience through very difficult life circumstances. As you read, notice what characteristics show up over and over again. The stories shared here are real. People like you have decided to share their struggles and their success. It’s our hope that you find hope in their stories and that you will share your story too.
Live Hannah’s Hope celebrates resilience in these specific ways.
1. Share your story. We ask those who have walked the path of pain and survived to share their stories.
2. #1MinuteOfHope2Cope. Take a minute to share what gives you hope.
