Heal Your Story Toolkit


Why we made the Toolkit

We created the Heal Your Story Toolkit to support communities interested in hosting screenings and meaningful discussions.

Peer support groups, recovery centers, homeless shelters, educational institutions, survivor networks, and yoga communities use the toolkit to feel confident in presenting the film to their members, and as a way to dive deeper into the healing processes presented in Is Your Story Making You Sick?

“A masterful and magical resource!”

  • A comprehensive 25-page Screening and Discussion Guide

  • Multiple versions of the film (3, 15, and 90 minutes)

  • License to screen and share the film at your organization.


Screening & Discussion Guide

This expansive guide walks organizational leaders through supporting their audience before, during, and after watching the film. It includes bonus information about the participants and exercises seen on screen and gives you everything you need to know to host a successful community screening event. 


The Film

Make Is Your Story Making You Sick? a part of your permanent educational library, so you can utilize this engaging tool for years to come. Watch, share, and learn from this unique combination of interview from leading mental health experts, candid depictions of narrative exercises, and inspiring transformations of brave and resilient participants.



The Heal Your Story Toolkit grants you license to use the film within your organization for years to come. The film and guide become a permanent part of your library and something you can use to host workshops and in-house movie nights forever! A regular consumer DVD does not give license to use the film in this way.
