Our blog is a lively forum for discussion.
Each week we post a number of blogs on a range of topics relating in some way to mental health.
A blog post may be someone's personal experience, a reaction to public events, or just views and ideas about how to better shape mental health services, and better support people who experience mental health problems.
Each of our posts is from an individual viewpoint, and we try to represent a range of views on here — from service users to health professionals, from Mind staff to policy makers.
