Guess what that means for me and the Roof? Yep. A friend on FB from an old mental health community I used to be a part of, gave the site a little plug, and I commented that I haven’t been there because it’s too daunting with a screen reader. I mentioned that I had thought about seeing if there was any autism info there, for my series. She commented back, telling me about May and my first thought was nooooo, I can’t do back to back awareness months. But…I feel drawn to it. Especially since I have some experience with mental health, and I have some time to plan.
Sooooo….I’d like to have more guest bloggers for this. You can write anonymously, as I know mental health is touchy. Obviously I would know, but I could post it anonymously. I really think that these things are so much better explained by people actualy living it. So, if you’ve had struggles with mental health, start thinking about whether you’d like to contribute, or if you have any good sources. You can always reach me by posting a comment and telling me not to post it. That’s one of the beauties of comment moderation.
Anything will do. Were you depressed at some point in your life? Did you seek help? Did you get through it on your own? Have you struggled with addiction? Did you have post partem depression? Have you been diagnosed with an ongoing mental health condition? Do you know someone with a mental health condition? The list goes on.
No one is obligated to write a guest post, and like I said, I can do it anonymously or I can link to you, etc. Just think about it.
I’m not sure what I’m getting myself into, what with the writing course and all haha! I will not do an awareness month for June hahaha!
Oh and I will be going into my own struggles with depression next month as well. I’ve talked a little about it here and there, but never really in one post, so I’ll be doing that too. Yikes. 🙂
