Tell Us About Your Friend

Submit Your Vignette

Friends of Lionel has one primary goal and that is to promote and circulate The Anti-Stigma for those who are living with serious mental illness.  We believe the use of vignettes is a positive approach to erasing or even preventing stigma in the first place.  It doesn't preach or get pushy, but rather teaches and entertains while painting a sensitive, positive image of those living with serious mental illness and how they live their lives. So, as you write your vignette try to keep our goal in mind and let your affection for your friend shine through; it just may rub off on your readers. And that is how we can turn rejection into affection.
