Storytellers are volunteers who bravely share their true, personal recovery stories as a way to help break the stigma of mental illness. Storytellers are trained on the mission, vision, purpose and history of MHA, and are often called upon to represent MHA or accompany staff to various health fairs, civic presentations, campus or church meetings, or other venues. MHA Storytellers also foster dialogue about mental health at Coffee & Conversation events.
