Personal Stories is a platform for sharing stories of Mayo Clinic employees’ experiences around Mental Health. You can share your story in a way that is comfortable to you. Anonymously, or non-anonymously.

When preparing to share your story, here are some considerations to help you:

  • Reflect on why it’s important to you to share your story
  • Share your story from your point of view, and only share what you feel comfortable sharing
  • If your story includes names of individuals, make sure to ask their permission to identify them
  • It’s totally normal if you become emotional while telling your story, so take your time and take comfort that you are providing hope for many others
  • If you need some extra inspiration, you can view fellow Mayo Clinic staff testimonials here.

    We hope that you will join us in giving a voice to a struggle that millions of people worldwide face every day. While we have created this page for learners and employees to be an open, safe place to express yourself, submitting your story is not the same as seeking out resources. If you or someone you know needs immediate help, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 988. The hotline is open 24/7. Submission of the stories to this online platform is not the same as contacting Integrity and Compliance Office or Human Resources and cannot be viewed as a replacement for contacting Integrity and Compliance Office or Human Resources. After submitting your story, the content will be edited to work within the template. Please note that your story could appear on any and all Mayo Clinic Platforms as well as featured on the Mental Health and Well-Being external website. You will be able to read your story before publishing.
