TRUE STORIES OF MENTAL HEALTH AND ILLNESS TO DISRUPT STIGMA.


The Manic Monologues

STIGMA CAN BE MORE FATAL THAN MENTAL ILLNESS ITSELF.

But we can change that narrative.

The Manic Monologues brings to life incredible stories — stories that will challenge and inform your ideas about what it means to be touched by a mental health condition. These true, lived experiences come from diverse and resilient people living across the world. These brave individuals have things to say about struggle and pain, but also triumph and joy. They are moving. They are human.

And they are not ashamed.

"The key to reducing stigma is contact, humanization, and personal narrative. As a poignant and deeply honest set of first-person accounts, The Manic Monologues accomplishes these goals brilliantly."
