I am in the process of writing the story of one of my dear friends who is battling a number of mental illnesses and ed's that are convincing her she is anything other than amazing and wonderful. There is such a stigma attached to mental illnesses , ed's and suicide, and people need to realise that most of the time suicide is the final straw of someone who has been strong for far too long, and its not for attention seeking.

After talking to other people suffering from similar problems, i realised that there the stigma is so great that while we think we are all aware of it, we still don't accept it unconditionally and are still quick to judge or jump to conclusions. This lack of compassion is horrible, and i want to try my part to make people who do have ed's, mental illnesses or suicidal thoughts realise that they aren't alone.

The ultimate goal is to gather enough creative responses to create a book, which will be published and available online to the general public through self publishing site blurb, and all the proceeds will go directly to the inspire foundation, to help young people aged 15-24 who are most at risk of suicide or self harm from mental illness of ed's.

Due to the nature, they do need to be true stories, and because of this there would be strict confidentiality if they didn't wish to be named, as these things can be quite personal. I’m not sure how this would quite work, but if you could just keep it in mind, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you,
Stacie.

It may just be the administrators that can move pieces to certain folders (I'm not sure). If you hover over your submission and an icon with a pencil shows up next to it, click on it and select Move To and select your desired folder. If you're unable to do so, I can move it for you.
