Well, what a week it has been! After writing all week about different aspects of mental health I’m so pleased with the response. I’ve been amazed by the responses, the number of people reading, it’s been amazing! That said, I know that not everyone checks in every day with my blog (it’s ok, I’ll forgive you) so here’s a round-up of this weeks posts!
A big welcome to the week and a heads up about what I’m planning to do with it.
One of the big questions in the community is about therapy and whether it works, so I decided to talk about it and why it’s good to talk!
10 Ways To Support Someone With A Mental Illness
It can be really hard to support someone who is mentally ill. So I’ve put together some tips on how to support someone with a mental illness and what might work for you and them.
Of course, I was going to talk about books! I’ve picked 10 reads I thought did it right when it comes to mental illness.
I Have, I Am – Talking About Mental Illness
I’m really interested in the terminology we use to discuss our mental health. This post was to discuss that and how we relate ourselves and our illnesses.
My own personal post about my mental health right now and how I’m doing. I try and write one of these every year just being honest about how I’ve been doing, what place I’m in right now.
I’ve enjoyed writing and getting to know more of you this week. We have to remember that this week is excellent but mental health awareness needs to carry on. It needs to be spoken about without shame or stigma.
Thanks so much for reading!
