Facing Us Submission Center

Provide inspiration to others by sharing your personal story, music or artwork. Submissions will be reviewed by DBSA staff for potential inclusion in the Media Room of FacingUs.org. Please note: submission does not guarantee placement on the site.

You will receive an email from webmaster@DBSAlliance.org, should your video, music or art piece be posted to the site. Be sure to send a link to your work to friends and/or family members. You could even send an e-postcard from FacingUs.org inviting them to see/hear your video, music or art.

From time to time, DBSA will run contests for submissions. Periodically check back to this page for more details about any contests. Occasionally we might also highlight contests run by outside organizations that might be of interest to individuals living with or affected by a mood disorder.
