Stories to help with Anxiety and Mental Health

Hey! Last year I published my story Loving Me following an MC living with anxiety.

It included tips and strategies for managing anxiety and panic attacks as well as offering general info around living with anxiety, low mood and low self esteem.

Loving Me was featured on the Decembers Editors Pick shelf.

I have just published the first three episodes of my new story, The Diary of an Anxious Teen. The story is along the same lines and follows teenage Priya on her journey to mange and understand her anxiety in High School. It offers more tips, strategies and info around living with anxiety.

I recently read a thread on here about the influence and impact episode stories can have on their readers. I believe everything we see and hear can influence which is why I choose to write my stories for the purpose of supporting and offering comfort to those who might be struggling.

I thought I would start this thread to share stories that have a focus on promoting good mental health, bringing awareness to mental health concerns and offering comfort and support to those who suffer from them.

Drop stories below if they fit this description. You never know who will find these stories and find comfort in reading them :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

If you would check out my story it would be great appreciated! I have worked on it for over a year now! Hopefully your love it as much As I do :slight_smile:

There is a lot of triggers in my story, Its a dramatic, Romantic, slight bit of thriller in and a slight bit of horror in as well

One reader quoted the following after reading all chapters “Its a classical version of flowers in the attic” I would also like to add even though the reader has said its like this story there is NO INCEST in my story And another: "I don`t have much to say about your story besides is absolutely Beautiful"
