[ THE CHALLENGE ]

One of the greatest challenges surrounding mental health is the perceived stigma or shame. Research tells us that despite having a close network, a person may still find it hard to connect on a deeper level and share their vulnerabilities – holding back for fear of judgment, feeling burdensome, labeled, or just misunderstood. Many don’t feel they can share, leaving those struggling through life in a place of emotional isolation.

[ ABOUT STORY]

White arrow in a black rectangle, pointing downwards

STORY mag is a free to the people large format printed magazine, containing personal reflections by everyday people who have gone through a life experience and are willing to open up and share their insights and learnings.

The stories—some anonymous, and some credited—are engaging, raw and heartfelt, conferring a sense of empathy and deep connection to the reader. STORY shares the experiences of others, communicating growth through adversity, whilst leaving the readers feeling less alone in their own story.

The magazine features photography and illustrations by leading Australian artists with the knowledge that art and design can be a powerful force in breaking down barriers and humanising life, offering a new way to relate to mental health, social and emotional wellbeing.

[ HOW IT WORKS ]

Connection is powered by sharing, and STORY mag is powered by organisations who choose to partner with the magazine, purchase a print run, and then take an active role in the distribution, gifting STORY mag to their people, customers, partners, stakeholders and wider community.

The ‘Powered by’ stamp on the front cover of the magazine, identifies who has Powered Up the copy held.
