Request for AA Members’ Stories on Mental Health and Recovery

The Literature Sub Committee of the GSB is preparing a pamphlet on mental health issues and recovery in AA, with the aim of presenting a draft for approval by Conference in 2022. If you are in recovery and have experienced mental health problems (whether before, or since getting sober) we would love to read of your experience and how it affected your AA programme. A representative sample of submissions (guide length 750 words) will be selected for our proposed publication. The Sub Committee may make editing changes prior to publication; any such changes will be agreed with the author. Deadline for submissions is 30 SEPT 2021.

 Articles may be sent to Literature SC, c/o GSO, PO Box 1, 10 Toft Green, York, YO1 7NJ, UK or by email to
