Storytelling and Mental Health

How storytelling can benefit a student’s positive
mental health, wholeness and well-being and belonging.

     Americans All is a unique, multi-purpose, multimedia storytelling tool that benefits three separate, but interconnected, groups: students (create virtual yearbooks for clubs and teams they participate in, and access discounts); schools (a turnkey revenue generator), and local business/professional service providers (additional exposure). Our web-based app is free; easy to install, access and update; and the stories can be published in multiple languages on our site.   

     If students have already created a story, they can repurpose it by adding additional photographs and other media, and publish it in multiple languages. Intergenerational knowledge of one’s family history is associated with positive mental health, wholeness and well-being.
