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 a little better in the “About” section.  A summary of my off-blog writing can be found in my “Writing portfolio“.  My social media links are at the bottom of the page.

You can find all of my posts in the “Blog” section, and in the “Blog index” you’ll find some of the recurring series/themes I’ve done.  I review mental health-related books, and you can find my reviews in the “Book reviews” section.  The “Resources” section has links to useful websites and apps related to mental health, plus sites where you can submit your stories about your own mental illness journey.

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.  I’m excited to have you join me on this journey!
