The focus is writing by and for people of all ages and genders who have suffered or are currently suffering from eating disorders, body image issues, depression, suicide, and survival. The goal is to spread awareness and share the stories and truths of those who have suffered with or witnessed the often devastating effects of these ailments. We are looking for stories of survival as well as stories of loss and hopelessness in an effort to reach those who feel they may be alone in their battle.
