About the Mind blog

Blogs can show that people with mental health problems are cared about, understood and listened to.

The Mind blog can empower and strengthen. Your blog can challenge the status quo and change attitudes.

Since the Mind blog launched in 2009, it has been a great platform to show that mental health is an important issue and to share stories of everyday people experiencing mental health problems.
