Mental health begins at home – and by home, I mean your home base, your centre, your place of strength and support.

Welcome to Mental Health @ Home!  This blog takes a no-holds-barred look at a variety of issues related to mental health, drawing on my dual perspectives as a mental health nurse and person living with major depressive disorder.  You can get to know me better in the About section, and under the About menu is my Writing portfolio.

Under the Blog menu above is a breakdown of some of the recurring series/themes I’ve done.  I review mental health-related books, and these are listed in the Book reviews section.  The Resources section has links to useful mental health-related websites and apps.

Every week I feature a guest blogger in my emerging blogger series.  The directory for this series is on the emerging blogger series page.

I’m a strong believer in speaking up against stigma, and in educating ourselves so we can make the best possible choices.  Together, we’re a force to be reckoned with.  Let’s Stop Stigma!  I’m excited to have you join me on this journey!

My book Psych Meds Made Simple: How & Why They Do What They Do is available on Amazon
