Get Involved

There are lots of ways you can be part of Our Time’s work, from fundraising to sharing your story. Even learning more about parental mental illness yourself can contribute towards reducing the stigma that exists within society.

Writing or recording stories isn’t always easy, but they can often prompt powerful responses, help those affected or even change attitudes. If you are comfortable with Our Time publishing your story online, we would love to hear from you.
