Stories

You are not alone.

A story is the gateway to believing that a new reality is possible.

There’s nothing more powerful than feeling understood & relating to another person’s experience. It rids us of shame & loneliness and provides us with a blueprint of what’s possible.

Since our inception in mid 2017, Heart On My Sleeve has shared hundreds of stories across the world which have inspired help seeking behaviour toward a more positive state of mental health.
