Please contact us if you have questions, comments, or stories you would like to share. We are looking for contributors to share meaningful experiences they have as patients or as someone who is involved with caring for or supporting patients.
Yes, this is a platform for TBI survivors, but we have found people can relate to each other across conditions and in ways of life other than within their specific circumstances. Very related patient populations are those who had a stroke, have dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism, schizophrenia, substance abuse disorders, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and essentially any condition related to the mind. Additionally, any condition that causes extreme fatigue or disability is also very related. There have been several accounts when those with cancer (battling and in remission), HIV, lupus, etc., have sat Jing down to help her recognize how patient experiences are similar. Jing will share these stories when she finds the time…she found these stories to be extremely humbling and profound experiences.
To explain the process of submissions:
Contact us through the submission form below indicating you would like to be a contributor, you know someone who would be a great contributor, or there is a voice you would like us to help amplify.
What We DO: The role of the Blog Team is to assist writers in finalizing their publications, i.e., asking what title or featured photo they want, what items in their text they want bolded, how to protect the names and identities of individuals in their stories, etc., and then we will typically reflect on their piece. We ask permission from the author whether they believe my reflection seems appropriate to them before the final publication. We are extremely mindful of ensuring the author’s voice is authentic and that the level of anonymity desired is respected. The author and Blog Team members work closely to ensure their piece reflects their own voice and align with The MindReset’s mission to create more supportive, inclusive, compassionate, and kind communities. We also help promote pieces upon request.
What We DO NOT do: We do not change wording or content unless it is obviously harmful to the writer or the reader. In those instances, we typically will not publish the piece or will suggest changes with the author’s input.
That, being said, if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
No voice is better or stronger than another.
We encourage you to be BRAVE ❤ All voices that aim to provide
compassion and hope are important and must be recognized and heard.
Together, we can make this world a better, kinder place 🙂
