Essay Writing Contest

What is Sitara’s Story’s #dearmum campaign?

It is an essay writing competition where everyone is invited to explore their own mental wellbeing. Entrants are asked to write a letter to their mother (or other important family figure) on any topic they choose. The letter could be introducing something they wish they could discuss with their mother/significant other face to face, it might be about feelings (good and bad) or it might be acknowledging Mum’s/other significant other’s support. Sharing stories with mother or other family member/s aligns with this year’s Mental Health Month theme of “Stronger Together”.
