At NAMI Westside LA, we believe in the power of shared experiences to foster understanding, support, and healing. Your stories play a vital role in our mission to educate and advocate for mental health in our community. Whether you are someone with lived experience, a family member, or a supporter, your voice is essential.

Why Share Your Story?

Sharing your story can be a transformative experience—not just for you, but for others who may find themselves in similar situations. It helps to break down the stigma surrounding mental health issues, showing that it’s okay to talk openly and seek help. Each story shared is a step toward a more compassionate community.

How Your Stories Make a Difference

Your experiences provide insight into the real-life impact of mental health challenges and the pathways to recovery. They help others feel less alone and offer hope and encouragement. Additionally, your stories help us tailor our programs and outreach to better serve the needs of our community.
