Share Article

Interactive Web events will provide access to experts on topics related to living with chronic illness and disabilities; registration now open for first event scheduled March 26

"When SSDI applications are denied, it’s often because they don’t include enough—or the correct—information. The story is incomplete.”

Allsup, a nationwide Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) representation company, will host the Web event, “Telling Your Story,” on Thursday, March 26, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (CST). Designed to empower individuals with disabilities, “Telling Your Story” will explain how translating emotional events into words can positively impact physical and mental health, relationships and even financial well-being.

People with disabilities and experts from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), WomenHeart, the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, and the United Spinal Association will discuss the importance of personal stories and the role they play in healing, empowering, advocating and connecting those with disabilities.

“We hear compelling stories every day,” said Tai Venuti, Allsup manager of Strategic Alliances. “Our role as a Social Security disability representative is to listen, and to help individuals tell their stories accurately and completely. When SSDI applications are denied, it’s often because they don’t include enough—or the correct—information. The story is incomplete.”

“Telling Your Story” will provide participants with the knowledge and tools to develop their own narratives to reach various audiences, including friends and family, healthcare providers, social service agencies, insurance carriers, peers, media representatives and policymakers.

The event will feature videos and interactive activities including group chats, an opportunity to question experts, and a Tell Your Story contest.

Programs like NAMI’s In Our Own Voice, WomenHeart Champions and United Spinal Association’s Roll on Capitol Hill showcase the power of personal stories to raise awareness, heal, empower and advocate.
