This Week's Story: Beyond the Dirty Window

This week's digital story is a story from Leah Harris about mental health recovery. About overcoming a legacy of oppression. About reclaiming her life and defining herself on her own terms. About being part of a global movement working for rights, dignity, and justice for people labeled with mental illness, mad people, and people living with emotional distress.

The Power of Storytelling

The Power of Storytelling | Mental Health Treatment | Scoop.it

[I would add story sharing to the telling part as well.]

 

Over the years, I have heard many powerful recovery stories. I’ve also had many opportunities to share our family’s struggle with mental health challenges and our recovery journey.

 

Each time I share my story, it gets a little easier. I feel a little lighter, a little more hopeful. And I realize how far our family has come, how much we have learned and healed.

 

Stories are powerful. And so is the process of telling them.

 

Here is what I have observed over my last 10 years of storytelling:

My stepfather was gay and had served in the military in the 1940's. He experienced no kindness and very little acceptance for his sexuality during his time on this planet.

Heather Manley's curator insight, January 21, 2015 6:47 PM

This article focuses more on the statistics of members in LGBT, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgender. As we have covered in class, the use of words is important when talking about students and their disabilities. We discussed how deaf students associate as a group by saying they are Deaf. This is similar for students in LGBT. One out of two transgender individuals commit suicide due to bullying. Being accepted by others is huge in this world and for transgender individuals it is even harder to be accepted because they are seen as different. If they are bullied at school, they become depressed and feel unwanted, leading to suicide. Imagine how it would feel to not be accepted for being who you are. Without helps from schools, students cannot express the way they feel, which cannot be fun for them. The article talks about offering a class at schools to educate students about the struggles LGBT members face. Although this is a good idea, I feel many people will be upset with students taking this class because many will feel that school is not the place to discuss those topics. Yet, schools do this for students with disabilities and people understand that. IDEA allows students with disabilities to be noticed and not invisible so why not do the same for transgender students?
