At The Know, we see knowledge as part-scientific, part-experiential. We get the answers we can from the experts, but we also look to our community to share their experiences. Everyone has a story and a relationship to mental health.  We'd be honored if you shared yours with us. Whether it's about your mental health care routine, a question you have about mental health, an experience (direct or indirect) with mental illness, or a comment on mental health in our modern world, we want to read it—and publish it! We believe that by sharing stories and experiences usually kept private, we empower our readers with knowledge that strengthens minds and our writers with the freedom that comes from acknowledging your experiences through writing.

Please submit your story, around 500 words, to We'll select submissions to be published with your byline or anonymously, whichever you prefer. Thank you in advance for your time and bravery!
