We’ve officially reached the end of our Shattering Stigmas mental health event, and we just want to say: thank you. Thank you for the outpouring of positive comments we’ve received, thank you for opening up about your own stories, thank you for sharing our posts, thank you for your excitement, thank you. We were all really anxious (har har) about the event starting, wondering how it would be received, and we’re just so overwhelmed and happy about all the lovely reactions we’ve gotten.
This is exactly what we had in mind when we designed the event: we wanted to raise more awareness, to teach the reader a few things about mental health, to invite conversation, and to make others feel like they’re not alone. And I think we’ve managed to do just that.
If you’d like to catch up on any posts you may have missed:
Also, if you’ve written a post of your own for our event, make sure you link up at the bottom of Shannon’s post here.
To close off, we’ve organised a giveaway for you all, in which three winners can win any book mentioned during the Shattering Stigmas event. The giveaway will be international, as long as The Book Depository ships to you.
Again, thank you.
