Your experiences, your thoughts, all of this matters. Maybe you're a healthcare provider and also a patient. Put your story into the archive, it matters now, and it'll matter in the future as we work towards a world that's better prepared
Maybe you have encouraging words, or something you wrote about hope or courage, community or love. Whether it's words, art, poems, share what's giving you strength.
Health and public health have been my interests for twenty years. I'm a professor of clinical psychology. I started this project so we could all learn as much as we can from each other's experiences. Our way into the future is lit by the lights of stories like yours.
Listening allows us to grow in knowledge and compassion for one another. I'm a postdoctoral psychology fellow working with foster youths in west Tennessee. This project helps us to hear about the experiences of those affected by this pandemic.
I am passionate about stories and listening to unheard voices. Through stories I learn more about the resiliency that immigrant children and their families find to face obstacles such as forced displacement, cultural discrimination, and community violence. Through this project, your stories will help us to build a community of preparedness and understanding as we move forward together.
