What is MyChapters?

MyChapters offers essential support to individuals and their loved ones struggling with mental illness, affected by a life-threatening illness or debilitating disease, serving in the military, or seeking to catalog and share “chapters” of their life with family and friends.

Everyone needs a place to put “it.” IT can be a feeling, a thought, an experience, a request for others to support, a place to share your journey, a place to not feel alone. This is your personal virtual journal to capture the journey you are on.

These tools allow one to create and share memories that make living feel meaningful and worthwhile – now, during this difficult chapter of one’s life, and for future generations.
