As well as our MadPersons who have lived experience of mental illness themselves, we also encourage storytelling from carers. This can include written stories, films/theatre or visual art.

As a carer contributing to our site and our face-to-face projects, you need to make sure you have consent from the person you care for the share their story. Even with full consent, you should be sensitive about levels of disclosure. Our team will guide you through this process.

Like those contributors who are mental health consumers, you get a prefix to your avatar name. The prefix Caring will be added to your chosen plant or animal.
