What Is the 'Your Mental Health' Blog About?
Welcome to the Your Mental Health blog. I’m Natasha Tracy, Blog Manager at HealthyPlace.
The Your Mental Health Blog addresses concerns that are important to those dealing with mental health disorders. Our writers will be covering topics ranging from diagnosis and treatment issues to how to deal with mental health stigma and maintaining balance in your life. Whether you are living with a mental health condition or you are a spouse, parent, or loved one of someone who does, we’ll have mental health information that will be of interest to you.
The 'Your Mental Health' Blog Is a Different Kind of Blog
Two things make the Your Mental Health Blog different from other HealthyPlace blogs:
- Each post will be written by a guest author.
- Instead of covering one specific mental health disorder, the blog will be open to discuss any and all aspects of mental health.
This should make for a very interesting and lively blog. We’re hoping you’ll fill in the lively part by sharing your knowledge and experiences in the comments section. And if you have any topic suggestions, feel free to share them by writing us at: info AT healthyplace.com. In the subject line put: Your Mental Health Blog Topic Idea
I’d Like to Write a Guest Post for the Blog
We’d love to have you do that. The author may be any type of mental health treatment professional, researcher, a person living with a mental health condition, or a parent, spouse or loved one, or anyone else who has mental health information or a perspective to share with our readers. We do have some guidelines:
- Each article must be original works of authorship and cannot appear anywhere else on the Internet. Once the article is submitted to HealthyPlace and appears on the HealthyPlace.com website, HealthyPlace.com, Inc. will own the copyright to the article.
- The article must be well-written and range from 400-600 words.
- If you want to do a video blog, we need at least a 3-4 paragraph intro to the video. The video should be no longer than 3:30, with good lighting and clear sound.
- Each submission must be accompanied by the person’s real name, a 2-4 sentence description of who the author is (please make it relevant to the article) and a link to the author's website, blog, or social site.
Please submit your topic idea via email to: info AT healthyplace.com In the subject, put: Your Mental Health Blog Guest Author. Provide a 3-4 sentence topic summary and let us know who you are and why you want to write this post.
That’s it. The Your Mental Health Blog launches next week. Sign up for the HealthyPlace Mental Health Newsletter or join us on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest to keep up with what’s happening on the blog and the site.

What if everyone dont know about your site. I feel. The blog posts belong to the author and should be free to post anywhere... That is very restrictive.
Why are those rules applied?
I'm sorry, but these are our policies and are typical of professional sites. People who submit to this blog are aware of them and agree to follow them. Certainly, if these policies don't work for you, then submitting an article to us might not be the right fit.
We discuss openly and honestly our journey at www.queenslandmentalhealth.com
One of the topics we have discussed at length which has generated a lot of heated debate is ECT. Pauline as the person who has the ECT treatment swears by it as it is the only thing that can break her psychotic episodes.
I'm off to write an article to submit. Best wishes to everyone here. I hope you all have an awesome day!
Love and best wishes,
The book is titled "The Diagnosis Should Have Been: ARTIST". I would like to share parts of it here or maybe even start a blog. I want to share my Hope and Inspiration with others. I am donating all proceeds to mental health causes.
My contribution (if accepted) will be based on Disordered Eating - I maintain a website here www.disorderedeatingsupport.com
I look forward to seeing this progress :)
I would love to guest post, but I wouldn't want to provide my full real name or my picture. I don't feel comfortable with that yet. If those guidelines ever change, I would definitely love to participate.
My son has the diagnosis of paranoia/delusional schizophrenia. Our family has been coping with this for about 7 years. He is now in the State Hospital. I work for the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill as a Mentor.
Studying and writing about mental illness/mental healthcare is my passion since it hits so close to home for me.
Through my experience in the field of mental health I think if we want to enjoy a healthy psychological and mental good must be our goals in life and strive to achieve these goals.
