We want to feature your story
In July, we want to highlight real women of color (not "brands") sharing their stories of mental wellness.
Each day of July (People of Color Mental Health Awareness Month), the Redefine Enough Instagram page will feature a mental wellness story from a woman of color, along with a mental health resource.

Write out your story and submit it by June 21st 2018. If you need help thinking of a topic, please read suggestions provided below. This is not an exhaustive list and we encourage you to step outside the box and share what feels most impactful for you. It's your story and you decide how to share it with the world.
