I commenced compiling this living manuscript of personal experiences with mental illness in 2003. My intention is to provide first hand insight into living with a mental illness, in hope of increasing awareness, understanding and reducing stigma around mental illness. Those living with a mental illness who submitted feedback, have indicated Glimpses helped them gain greater insight into their illnesses and made them feel connected, less isolated and alone; no longer like the only one living through the complexities of mental illness.


We are currently accepting recommendations for Mental Health Coping Strategies & Techniques, and Australian Online Supports, Research Study Sites, Treatments & Therapies, Apps, Courses and Lived Experience Books. Please fill out the submission form below, and once we look at a suggested inclusion, we will add them to our site.
