those that share their story, and those that listen.

You can share your story with us in different ways:

  1. Post your story, in text or through a video, on facebook under the #taskeen

    We would love to talk to you.

Guidelines on Submitting Stories

There are no right or wrong stories since every single story is unique.
But here are some guiding questions which can help you to get started and stay focused:

  • Looking back now, where do you think your story of mental illness (your personal mental illness, or your role as a caregiver) has started?
  • What kind of stigma have you encountered and how have you managed to overcome it?
  • What has helped you the most on your journey of recovery?
  • Is there anything you would like to share with others who go through a similar experience?
