Blogging about mental health issues
Each week we publish blog posts on a whole range of topics, relating in some way to mental health.
We welcome comments and questions on our posts, but have a few ground rules to keep the site welcoming and interesting to every body. The first rule is the most important: be respectful of other commenters and bloggers.
