We’re Partnering With The Mighty!

By To Write Love on Her Arms

We’re happy to announce a new partnership that will put TWLOHA’s resources in front of The Mighty‘s wide-reaching readership. TWLOHA will now have a home page on The Mighty and will appear on many stories on the site. The goal is to bring our message, our mission, and our list of resources to as many people as possible.

The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of those facing disease, disorder, mental illness, and disability. More than half of Americans are facing serious health conditions or medical issues. They want more than information. They want to be inspired. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges.

As you know, we’re committed to helping those who struggle with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. This partnership will allow us to help even more people.

We encourage you to submit a story to The Mighty and make your voice heard. To share your story on our blog, please email info@twloha.com.

(Here’s an example of the kind of stories on The Mighty: The Difference Between Wanting to Die and Wanting the Pain to Stop)

      Paula,

      We are incredibly sorry for the struggles you and your family are enduring. Your granddaughter is fortunate to have a grandmother who cares so earnestly about her happiness and wellbeing. Please know that your concern is warranted and, even if it sometimes doesn’t feel this way, wanted. Please continue to be a safe space for her as she deals with these heavy issues.

      Seeking out a consoler is a great place to start, so please check out our resources page here: https://twloha.com/find-help/local-resources/

      With Hope,
      TWLOHA
