Share your story.
Save a life.

We believe that stories need to be shared, not silenced, if we want to erase the stigma surrounding mental illness and suicide.  Were you once contemplating suicide but made the critical decision to live?  Have you overcome a painful mental illness with effective drug treatment and/or therapy?  Have you found a way to turn a tragic suicide into something positive?  How has the MOM Race helped you?  Write to us.  We’d love to hear from you and, with your permission, share your inspiring story with other MOM followers.

tell us your story

We are also here to field any questions or comments you might have about Mind Over Matter or the MOM Race.  Please note that Mind Over Matter does not provide medical, psychological, diagnostic or treatment services.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text “HELP” to 741-741 for 24/7 support. If you are in need of immediate help, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
