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, which includes my Writing portfolio.

Under the Blog menu above is a breakdown of some of the recurring series/themes I’ve done.  The Book reviews section has my reviews of mental health-related book.  In the Resources section you’ll find links to useful mental health-related websites and apps.

Every week I feature a guest blogger in my emerging blogger series; check out the series directory for more info.  If you’re interested in participating, I would love to hear from you!

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 


I’m a contributor to the upcoming book The Silent Scream, a project by Maria Alfieri to raise funds for mental health charities.  To be released on Global Mental Day, October 10/19.
