Video: Us project book of stories
The full transcripts from all of the participants in the Us project have been bound together in a beautiful book designed by Heather Grace Mason.
The Us project was formed after I started thinking about how society reacts, supports or damages people who are survivors. The raw and sometimes brutally brave stories in this publication highlight what the world is like or those who have experienced abuse. It is an honest study of issues around the ever-changing mental health status survivors endure. It discusses issues such as self blame, and the presence of abuse's effect on love, relationships and the foundations of family.
The book will be helpful to many in society who wish to understand the mind of a survivor. From experiencers who wish to find validity in how they have reacted to what they have been through, to those who seek to understand their loved ones and offer the right kind of support. The publication gives voice to an experience society doesn't want to acknowledge, and in doing so validates survivors, letting them know their voice is important. It provides a safe space for truth.
