If you are a graduate student, post-doc, or faculty affiliated with Harvard Physics Department who has struggled with a mental health problem (including a large amount of stress and anxiety) and are looking for ways to contribute to improving student mental health, we encourage you to share your experience dealing with your problem by submitting an anonymous essay via the form below. You may write about your struggles, how you overcame your difficulty, what were some challenges in the process, and any words of encouragement or advice to those individuals who may be dealing with mental health issues currently.

The purpose of these essays is to normalize the experience of dealing with mental health problems and provide encouragement to struggling individuals. Submitted essays will be reviewed by a Council member and posted on a password-protected page of the Council's website which only Harvard Physics graduate community members will be allowed to access.
