#MIstory LA Workshop
BeRemarkable #MIstory led a series of workshops for those 13-17 who battle mental illness personally, or have a loved one who is affected. Teachers, writers, psychologists, and mental health advocates/influencers worked together with the youth to help them express their experiences in a creative, positive and safe environment via poetry, spoken word or classic storytelling.
Our vision is that through these workshops and by sharing our stories, children will gain the knowledge, courage and self acceptance to face their mental health head on and better manage their experiences.

At the end of the year, we produced a #MIstory LIVE event in Los Angeles. We invited a few of the children from past workshops, influencers, artists and advocates to share their story in front of a live audience - and stand up to stigma. It was a supportive and curated evening of story-telling, community, and music.
Our #MIstory experience was a huge success. Yet we just hit the tip of the iceberg. With the continuation of donations, we can continue #MIstory workshops and events and create a massive shift in the way children (and adults) perceive mental illness, and in the way that it is dealt with.
