The Brainpower Chronicles: Mental Health Stories
Storytelling has been an integral part of humanity’s history since before the written word.
Storytelling has been an integral part of humanity’s history since before the written word. From podcasts to TED talks, storytelling has taken on new forms as technology progresses, but its presence is constant. It’s human nature to share our stories of joy, pain, success, and loss with each other. These shared experiences, the act of sharing those experiences, deeply connects us to others in the world.
NAMI Washington launched The Brainpower Chronicles: Mental Health Stories to bring people together in their experiences of mental illness and recovery. Mental health crises can be some of the most isolating health events one may experience in this lifetime, with a ripple effect that impacts entire families. The Brainpower Chronicles is our way of creating community and breaking down the stigma that keeps people silent, while raising funds for NAMI Washington’s critical mission to improve the quality of life of all people affected by mental illness.
