Step Up & Support Friends!


Share your story with SAMSHA!

Recovery from mental health problems happens in a society of acceptance. Friends can make all the difference by just being there and offering support, friendship, strength and acceptance.

You have always been there for your friend – here is your chance to tell your story. We’re looking for meaningful stories about friends helping another through recovery from mental health problems or during a particularly hard time in their lives.

SUBMIT ENTRY Entries must be received by August 31, 2010
Winners will be announced September 15, 2010

The story can either be derived from real life or can be fictional. Please be discreet about the true identity of the friend with mental health problems unless he/she agrees to participate.

The winning video will be showcased at the Voice Awards in Los Angeles on October 13, 2010, and you and a companion will win a paid trip for two to attend the event. Two runner-up winners will each receive a new Flip MinoHD™ camera.

Not an aspiring filmmaker? We love to read prose too. Send us your story as a short essay, in less than 250 words. Two essay winners will be selected, and each will receive a new Flip MinoHD™ camera.
