For people who were moved by Postsecret and Humans of New York comes a brave, necessary nonfiction debut told in photos and stories by survivors of mental illness.

A semicolon tattoo says you’re choosing to continue your life story rather than end it. Amy Bleuel began the suicide-awareness and storytelling organization Project Semicolon in 2013 to spread a message of hope: no one struggling with mental illness is alone; you, too, can not only survive but live a life filled with joy and love. In support of the project and its message, hundreds of people all over the world have gotten semicolon tattoos and shared photos of them, often alongside stories of hardship, growth, and rebirth.

This nonfiction essay collection, edited by Amy, combines photos of semicolon tattoos with individuals’ own words about their struggles with mental illness. Project Semicolon: Your Story Isn’t Over reveals dozens of never-before-seen portraits and stories from people of all ages talking about what they have endured and what they want for their futures. At once heartfelt, unflinchingly honest, and eternally hopeful, all these lives tell the story of choice: every day, you choose to live and let your story be forever.
