Emphasizing good mental health and reducing the stigma around mental illness is what HealthyPlace is about.

Our bloggers will be sharing personal stories and experiences; things they have faced in dealing with mental illness.
"I am living with bipolar disorder. I've been through eating disorders and addiction. Recovering from mental illness is not impossible. It is difficult, it can feel impossible, and the process is never easy. I always urge people to stay as positive as you can." ~ Natalie Jeanne Champagne, author of the Recovering From Mental Illness blog
