Have a story to tell? Not sure what to say, to whom, and when? Thinking about sharing with someone for the first time or becoming an advocate for mental health?
Honest, Open, Proud (HOP): To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness is a workbook for small group discussion or personal use. It helps you to look at the story you have been telling yourself, discern helpful and hurtful self-attitudes, and analyze the pros and cons of disclosing in different settings to different people. Lastly, it guides you to draft your own story into a format that discloses not only the pain of mental health challenges but also the internal and external resources you discovered and use to live your life in the way you choose.
