Sharing Stories Through Postcards:

In the tradition of Post Secret, and in honor of Mental Illness Awareness Week, October 6-12th, NAMI High Country has asked the High Country Community to send anonymous postcards sharing some bit or piece of their personal story as it relates to their life or journey with mental illness. 

We will post ten postcards a week (on Tuesdays)!  Stay tuned.

You can drop off a postcard at Daymark or Hospitality House through October 12.  At any time you can send us a postcard at;

One thought on “Postcards

  1. These are truly touching and resonate with my own experiences and those of many others that I know and have known. I have had three friends commit suicide, including my own husband and the daughter of my best friend. I lost my father, my brother and my husband to alcoholism. I have a Traumatic Brain Injury and Depression and have learned about the stigma of these challenges. I did not understood what it was to experience both tragedy and severe mental health problems until I became both a TBI and suicide survivor within a six month period. I have learned so much from the things that I have suffered through and I want to share the compassion “The Dark Gift” that I have been given as a consolation prize. I want to help others.
